Christina Portillo  has asked me to clarify what the .PEN extension is, 
as used in the XML versions of the ISO entities.

It is just short for parameter entity, and could just as easily be .txt
or .sgm or .ent.   I think Panorama uses .pen.   It is just minimum data
text: ASCII.

It is a lovely and apt extension, whoever thought of it.
