I don't know XMLAuthority, but since it supports various XML schema
languages, most of which support data types, I'll guess that e-dtype is an
XMLAuthority-specific attribute meaning data type and that e-dSize is an
XMLAuthority-specific data type meaning data size. That is, if you use this
DTD with XMLAuthority -- for example, to edit a file according to this DTD
--  it will interpret these attributes to mean that my9810.SSN must be a
nine character string.
