| I'm trying to write a xml doc with emacs configured to use psgml-1.2.1
| but am having some problems. I have checked that psgml works with a
| simple dtd. However when I use the dtd (document-v10.dtd) below I get
| the following error.
| ~/character.ent line 2 col 12 entity common.att
| ~/document-v10.dtd line 218 col 29 entity DOCUMENT
| ~/installing.xml line 3 col 51
| Name expected; at: :lang

The error suggests that the dtd is parsed with the normal SGML syntax
instead of the XML syntax. Could it be that buffer with
"installing.xml" is using sgml-mode instead of xml-mode?

(The "~/character.ent" in the first line of the error message is
misleading. Bug some where :)
