Parsing XHTML documents

Defines a list of 9 (fairly obsolete) DTD Public identifiers for which
the XML parser should  fetch a predefined set of (html5) character
entity definitions.

This list encourages the use of non conforming (for XHTML5) DTD, it
would be preferable if the html5 entity definitions were also loaded
for the standard HTML5 doctype declaration <!DOCTYPE html> or all
doctypes, thus removing the need for this list. (XML parsers not in a
browser could in most cases be configured to behave this way using a
suitable catalog, but as in the current text this can be a "should"
requirement to allow XML parsers that do not read the definitions to be
conforming.
