I couldn't find it on their website, do you have a pointer to
information? This is *very* interesting!

There is a problem I see for xml search engines. How are they going to
cope with all the various DTD's? They ARE going to cope, but what will
be the result? Will we have lots of small search engines searching for
information in all reinforced_concrete_supplier.dtd xml files it can
find and another for all medicine.dtd info? Will there be a few
standard elements in most DTD's to comply to some emerging behaviour
of all search engines? There are so many ways this could work out. Any
