Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. Way too prickly, Arjun. From my reading, what he was
calling non-XML was not DTD syntax but the "xlink: show=new actuate=onLoad"
that gets stuffed into the notation pub ID, as a replacement from the XML
attribute syntax used in XLink. In fact this is crystal clear from his
message, I think.
So take a deep breath now...
