Wow, this is a side to DTDs that I'm unfamiliar with. Now, merely by virtue of
the fact that they are still able to draw breath, DTDs prevent one document from
being embedded in another by any means. Perhaps we should reconsider them - they
appear to be powerful in ways not previously explained to me...;-)

Horses for courses.
