Looks to me as though BOX has been omitted, and its tags are not omissible;
otherwise OVER is not allowed directly in %math (by oversight?).

Then again, LEFT isn't allowed directly in %math either:

<!ENTITY % math "BOX|ABOVE|BELOW|ROOT|ARRAY|SUB|SUP">
<!ENTITY % formula "#PCDATA|%math">

<!ELEMENT MATH - - (#PCDATA)* -(%notmath) +(%math)>
<!ATTLIST MATH
        id      ID      #IMPLIED
        model   CDATA   #IMPLIED>

This from         Draft: Thu  1-Dec-94 15:47:30

Are we looking at different DTDs?
