Unfortunately, this DTD also moves files around with no note as to whether
these are new/changed files or merely a new location for the existing
files. In particular, all the *.ent files are now apparently in
subdirectories, and while they have the same names as files found in the
original zip archive, there is no indication of whether they were changed
or why they were moved. The "mathml2/" subdirectory is also not listable,
so it's not possible to get at the files to compare them.

May I suggest you prepare an archive of all the files, as well as a dump of
the detailed (think "CVS") changelog for every file in the archive? That
would make it a lot easier to update to the new version(s).

As it stands, I can't use the new DTDs because they reference files that do
not exist in my local copy (from the MathML2 REC).

But thanks for the note! It makes my life /sooo/ much easier when I get
notified of new DTDs or TRs rather then have to track them down myself. I
really appreciate it!
