A fully-normalized string is fine with me - I'd rather get it as a string
and parse it myself than have to deal with something freaky a parser
developer really didn't want to have to code anyway.  But this info is
NECESSARY if anyone (me in particular) wants to build a validation engine
that lives outside the core parser.

How about:

    public abstract void elementDecl (String name,
					String contentModel)
	throws SAXException;

I like it, anyway.
