That's good. But we could argue for preferred formats - if someone does
know LinuxDoc or DocBook and DTD-X but we support LinuxDoc and DocBook I
don't think it's too much to politely say we prefer LinuxDoc or DocBoo
but not DTD-X. The problem with accepting stuff that isn't already
marked up is that someone has to mark it up...more time and more effort.


And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That a face that at first was ghostly
Turned a whiter shade of pale....
