Duh!  I knew that - brain fart.  Why don't we keep the DTD in CVS?  It 
is plain text right?  Does the DTD explain what exactly each element 
does (in non-english)?

I am confused on some stuff in the syntax_doc.  Mostly it is what is 
displayed in the synopsis section at the top.

I saw your other post.  That is fine if your changes do not effect the 
syntax_doc.  I understand now.
