Your reading is better than mine, and correct. I autoassociated "It uses
DTDs" with "non-xml syntax" in my reading. My apologies to Wayne.
There is nothing syntactically non-xml about that string as a Public ID.
It has only minimum data characters. (I think I'm one of the few people
in the world - maybe the only one - who doesn't automatically expect to
see FPI syntax in XML public ids. I could claim this as an excuse for my
misreading, but I won't - I should have read more closely anyway.)
