I've committed some changes to the test suite for
a few of the problems that were addressed below.

     [rr] internalSubset01 has been modifed to test for a null value that
           could be returned by the internalSubset() method if an internal
           subset does not exist as per the DOM Level 2 errata.

            staff2.xml and staff2.dtd have been committed to the test suite
            for this test since there were not any test files that contained a 
            DOCTYPE that was empty.

            An additional test will be added at a later date to test
            for an internal subset that is not null.

       [rr]  The ':' was removed from the prefix name.

     [rr]  The namespaceURI was changed to match that of the attribute in the
             entity reference.
