In moving from defining rules purely for HTML to rules for web content in
general, referring to a DTD is extremely important. (P1 checkpoint as soon
as browsers handle XML, in my humble first rush of opinion)

In HTML this is done by a DOCTYPE declaration. In XML, it is declaring
namespaces - see http://www.w3.org/TR/rec-xml-names

This comes under the guideline to use standard technologies - A.14
