They weren't "tricks", though no one is claiming that they aren't are 
complicated DTDs. Heavily parameterized DTDs are legal, and should (and can 
be) parsed appropriately by a robust parser.

The issue is MSXML, issues that have been repeatedly brought to Microsoft's 
attention, and so far are not forthcoming with corrections.
