I have been wanting to do something like this for a while as a follow on
from the document type list on my XML site. I think I might have said so in
a previous post a while back, I certainly mentioned it to PMR.

There is an appallingly simple taxonomy at my site and no direct links to
the DTDs themselves (although I plan to change that this week). I'd like to
spin off that part of my XML site and have registered a domain name for that
purpose (although there isn't a site there yet).

Let's do this!
