Congratulations, with that update any XHTML+MathML referencing that DTD
(including any document that was created with SciWriter)
will not be displayed anymore. 

The progress seems to be that you don't have to have a MathML plugin
installed to see the a blank screen in IE6 headed by the error message:

	The XML page cannot be displayed 
	Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the Refresh button, or try again later. 


	--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

	A name was started with an invalid character. Error processing resource 'test.xml'. Line 1, Position 2 

	<?


All documents with that doctype are now disabled:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 plus MathML 2.0//EN"     
                      "http://www.w3.org/Math/DTD/mathml2/xhtml-math11-f.dtd" >

The old version :

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1 plus MathML 2.0//EN"     
                      "http://www.w3.org/Math/DTD/mathml2/xhtml-math11-f-a.dtd" >

works.

The only bad thing is, the error message is not cross-browser compliant, you dont see
it in Mozilla, since unfortunately Mozilla uses its own DTD.

Subject: MathML DTD update




Following comments on the MathML DTD during the recent MathML 2 last call
as discussed on the www-math list, and with some further entity
definition corrections to align with the STIX consortium's entity data,
we have updated the MathML DTD at
http://www.w3.org/Math/DTD
and the description of the characters entities at
http://www.w3.org/Math/characters.

A gzipped tar file of the MathML DTD files is available at
http://www.w3.org/Math/DTD/mathml2.tgz
