Sean, I can't connect to this, perhaps you've been /.'d ? :-)

Right, that's because I'm changing the DTD, so to be consistent to what we
are proposing I'm using the namespace http://www.openhealth.org/XMLCatalog/
, and the document obtained by dereferencing this namespace URI is in fact
an XML Namespace Catalog.

It turns out that browsers ignore the html namespace. By creating a document
using a namespace http://www.w3.org/tr/xhtml-basic I assume that the
document 'conforms' to what is dereferenced at this namespace, namely the
XHTML Basic 1.0 W3C REC. Since we are modifying this spec, we assign a new
namespace no?

	I'm not understanding, what is "xhtml:type"?
