Thanks, I have done mine and updated the wiki accordingly.

Yup. In particular the published errata have a longer winded markup around attribute values etc.

Two of mine required editing svg.idl. I hope that I didn't break it. I don't have a way to validate my changes.

The fragment in the extend.html chapter is still there, by the way. Which may be fine as its being used specifically to comment on a feature of the DTD. Most of the other fragments were there to document the content model and allowed attributes of an element, which is now done in a better way.

(My example was inline but did not have a rendering, as it doesn't do anything. I checked that a stand-alone copy of the example was indeed DTD valid).

I failed there, in cygwin.

Yes, I had cvs updated the tools directory.
I will reboot into Linux and see if I win.
