I have just released a new version of IBTWSH, the Itsy Bitsy Teeny
Weeny Simple Hypertext DTD.

This is an XML DTD which describes a subset of XHTML Basic for embedded
use within other XML DTDs.  It is by intention equivalent
(within its scope) to -//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN, but is
not a derived work in the copyright sense.  (Brief excerpts from
HTML 4.0 Transitional appear here and there.)

It is often convenient for XML documents to have a bit of
documentation somewhere in them.  In the absence of a DTD like
this one, that documentation winds up being #PCDATA only, which is
a pity, because rich text adds measurably to the readability of
documents.  By incorporating this DTD by reference (as an
external parameter entity) into another DTD, that DTD inherits
the capabilities of this one.  Using HTML-compatible elements
and attributes allows the documentation to be passed straight
through to HTML renderers.

Draft 6.0 is seriously incompatible with drafts 5.0 and earlier,
but *is* a subset of XHTML Basic.  I will keep draft 5.0 around;
note that I have changed the FPI.

IBTWSH is in the public domain and can be retrieved at
http://www.ccil.org/~cowan/XML/ibtwsh6.dtd .
