Hi all!

Still asking some silly questions...sorry!

I'm working on a general purpose text DTD...But I've been facing some problems.

Here they are:

 - When defining parameter entities, the parser (IE5...I know;) complains about non valid characters such as '#' or even '('.
   For example I have this declaration : 
   (  link | see | anchor  |  em | quote | citation | copyright | date | name  | #PCDATA )*
   for an element content is invalid because of the # in #PCDATA.

 - I don't know if I can imbricate more than one level of parenthesis in element content declaration, ie:
   ( (first-name, last-name)+, address )*
   [This example is silly, but the important fact is imbricated parenthesis]
