I think the confusion is caused by my misunderstanding.  From your DTD:

Ron> <!ELEMENT NotationType (NotationValue+)>
Ron> <!ELEMENT NotationValue (#PCDATA)>
Ron> <!ATTLIST NotationValue
Ron>           Notation IDREF #REQUIRED>

In particular, NotationType contains a list of Notation values.  Why?
What's wrong with the following?

<!ELEMENT NotationType EMPTY>
