There was some talk about the SDD a couple of weeks ago. I gleaned from that
conversation that you can make declarations in the internal subset and still
qualify for 'standalone="yes"', but not in the external subset. The downside
of that is that you must deliver those declarations with each instance,
instead of referencing a central mini-DTD, or can you? Could you define your
mini-DTD, possibly a few entity and element declarations, save it to the
file-system, then reference it by way of an entity in the internal subset?
<?XML version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>
<!DOCTYPE test [
<!ENTITY mini-dtd SYSTEM "mini.dtd">
I'm unsure of whether the entity I defined above requires a pero (%) in
front of the entity name. If it does, please correct me.
