Anything that makes the work easier... :)

I'm also wondering... perhaps a general review of the current DTD is in 
order?  I want the new alfs to support the nALFS DTD, definitely, but 
perhaps as a plugin.  Instead of just using the old DTD as native for 
the alfs schema, we can review it and either simplify it or extend it as 
the need may be. Now might make a good time then, to look over the 
current DTD and look for improvements or changes.

I don't know much about DTD's or schemas, so I'm not sure what's really 
appropriate here, what do you guys think?
