Hi, Folks-

Olivier asked about fixing some of our old DTDs, and while this is a 
loathesomely painful task, it will make his life easier.  Can we talk 
about this at the next maintenance telcon, please?

Note that there are some other SVG validation issues that need to be 
solved, but one step at a time.

Regards-
-Doug
