Comment on:
Speech Synthesis Markup Language Specification for the Speech Interface
W3C Working Draft 3 January 2001

DTD gives "number:ordinal" and "number:digits" as valid say-as types, but
not just "number", however the example in 2.4 has <say-as type="number">.
According to my reading of the XML specification, and also according to
Microsoft's validating parser, this is not allowed by the DTD, you would
have to explicitly allow "number" -- there is no rule that says you can
match a prefix of the attribute value. The same issue applies to date, time
and duration types.
