Thanks, nice to hear that people find the stuff useful.

Yes, I realize that this is a problem right now.  But how would you like
the references to DTD's done?  Some commentary in the source code at
least (maybe with a bit of refactoring), and I was planning to write a
small blurb about used standards in the man page as well as have an
option to print out web links that are related to the errors detected.

This discussion is somewhat off-topic here, so I recommend that people
would use the gmuck forums or the mailing list, see
https://sourceforge.net/projects/gmuck/ for details.
