That was me--the DTD looks good at first glance, but I'll check some more.

I found the DTD, but I can't find the spec (and the SMGL declaration
seems to be only in the spec). I don't have a Web browser, but I can do
a "url_get" if someone can give me a URL for the spec.

(I emailed Dan, but received a "vacation" response saying that he
wouldn't be reading email for a week, so that's why I'm asking here.)
