Re: DTD formal syntax

The XML spec itself (http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml) has them in what it
calls, in section 6, "a simple Extended Backus-Naur Form." They're numbered
[1] to [89] and scattered through the spec.

If you really want them in a list separate from the spec, you could pull the
prod elements from the XML version of the spec
