From Building XHTML Modules, 5.1:

"parameter entities use the suffix .class when they are used to represent
elements of the same class"

From Modularization of XHTML, B.3.4.1:

<!ENTITY % InputType.class
              "( text | password | checkbox | radio | submit 
               | reset | file | hidden | image )"
>

.....

<!ATTLIST input
               %Common.attrib;
               type         %InputType.class;        'text'
....>

I sympathize with the idea that these input possibilities _should_ have
been elements, but they aren't.
