Ann - I agree, and thanks for correcting me. "Trick" is the wrong
word, I didn't want to imply that it is illegal - just using the full
DTD methodology, as you said. The problem is indeed with 
MSXML and has been known for a while.

	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.
