  I have a draft copy of the XBEL documentation.  It's available at:


  It is incomplete, but I am interested in comments.  I've attached
the current DTD below; the only change is that <info> now requires at
least one <metadata>.  Software that removes the last <metadata>
should discard the <info> as well.
  I don't recall that we reached resolution on the metadata stuff;
I'll leave it alone unless issues are brought up at this point.
  We also haven't reached a conclusion regarding the use of parameter
entities to make the DTD more easily extended; are there any remaining 
issues there?  My inclination is to "do it right" to allow DTD reuse,
but there were sentiments that went the other way.
