Thanks. There's still a minor grammatical error here. The semicolons are 
wrongly placed in the sentence

However, processing the external DTD subset is optional for conformant 
XML processors, and some specifications, notably <bibref ref="SOAP"/>, 
forbid DTDs completely; leaving no guarantee that all consumers of the 
XML document will be able to successfully recognize the identifiers.

This sentence should read:

However, processing the external DTD subset is optional for conformant 
XML processors; and some specifications, notably <bibref ref="SOAP"/>, 
forbid DTDs completely, leaving no guarantee that all consumers of the 
XML document will be able to successfully recognize the identifiers.

That is, put a semicolon after "XML processors" and change the semicolon 
before "leaving" to a comma.
