A DTD is a contract for structure, not for features. Battle-scarred
SGML veterans will remember the SGML declaration, which was the
contract for what features need to be supported by both ends ("I
promise not to use names longer than 8 characters", etc.). The SGML
declaration was first against the wall when the XML revolution came.
