------------------------------------------

Intriguingly, two of these use DOCTYPE.  Except for the JXTA one,
they're more useful to me than the binary versions would be, but they
sure don't reflect great thought about markup.  "Sanitizers" - where
"san" refers to "sane use of markup" - are going to be common tools for
working with this kind of stuff.
