Re: [Fwd: [Moderator Action] incorrect type in DTD for feMorphology radius]

Kirk is correct. The DTD is incorrect when it says:

    radius %Length; #IMPLIED

There are similar situations with the 'stdDeviation' attribute on 
feGaussianBlur and the 'baseFrequency' attribute on feTurbulence, which 
also take a list of two values. These attributes were just defined as CDATA.

Note that %Length; is defined as CDATA already, as Kirk points out, so 
changing the definition of this attribute will have no effect in terms of 
old-fashion (i.e., pre XML Schema) DTD validation.

I'll make sure this gets fixed.
