They are available at

By the way, could anyone who has mirrored these update them to the most
versions.  I get a couple of complaints per month about errors that are
long fixed.

Also, there is a technical question I have for everyone: what is the
preferred entity
value for the percnt entity?  I now have

    <!ENTITY percnt "&#38;#37;" ><!--=percent sign-->

SGML'86 validators do not pick up the following WF errror:

    <!ENTITY percnt "%" ><!--=percent sign-->
