I assume it should still be SGML.  Then neither of the two syntaxes is
any good.  The second isn't even valid SGML.  A better way would be to
declare PURPOSE as NAMES.  Then it can be a list of names.  Attribute
value lists in SGML are written without comma, only white-space
separate the list items.
