"the" XHTML 1.1 doctype?

	The document type must include, *at a minimum*, the Hypertext,
	Basic Text, and List modules defined in this specification. [1]

	A conforming XHTML family document is a valid instance of *a*
	conforming XHTML Host Language Conforming Document Type. [2]

	[emphasis added]

Where is the "the"?

It comes across that the hapless author must twiddle some mysterious DTD
arcana just to incorporate a table and an image, and they furthermore have
to wade through Appendices D, E, and F to figure out what such a spell
should be!  There really should be something more basic added here, IMO.
