That's fine by me. But what about :

<!ATTLIST Set
                
                FPI             CDATA           #IMPLIED
                %status.attrib;
                %common.attrib;
                %set.role.attrib;
                %local.set.attrib;
>

wheras :

<!ENTITY % local.set.attrib "">

%a should be S? a S?

okay, the production 

[46] 
       AttlistDecl ::= '<!ATTLIST' S %Name S? (%AttDef+)+ S? '>'

so in our case : (%AttDef+)+ is relevant. "" does not fire this rule
or does it ? (And it think it is good - from the point of a
parser generator - that it is not)
