Yepp - I guess it is a relict from html4 ("-//W3C//ENTITIES Latin 1//EN").
They just removed the CDATA literal and to reflect this, " for XHTML"
was append. Probably nobody thought at this time on catalogs ... :(
All other (newer?) PIDs (i.e. except lat1, special and symbol) use the better
scheme like "-//W3C//$category $application [$version ]$description//$lang".

Sounds good.

Of course - this would be probably the best solution ...
