Terje, are you sure? That document seems to talk about SGML rules, not XML. Therefore, I surmise that your statement would be unambiguously correct if I were making my own HTML DTD. But for XHTML, I found this reference:

http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-modularization/conformance.html#s_conform_naming_rules

Which says (among other things):
  The leading field must be "-" to indicate a privately defined resource.
Does that take precedence for XHTML DTDs, or must I still follow the ISO document you referenced?
