Re: pmathml.xsl example

It is a general XML rule that using an entity reference without
specifying a DTD is a fatal well formedness error.

You have to specify the mathml DTD (or at least a subset of it) if you
wish to use entity references. This is an XML requirement nothing to do
with the stylesheet.

Unfortunately the XML parser in IE6 is currently broken and doesn't
accept the mathml DTD so currently it is most portable if
you use ± to get the plus-or-minus symbol.
