Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: authoritative source for SGML ISO character entitydefinitions?

Sorry if the answer to this question is obvious or well-known, but I 
recently discovered that I ought to be using the SGML character entities, if 
I'm using DSSSL (yup, the 'ol "X00E1" is not a function name error).  Once I 
discovered that I needed these entities, I reviewed all the documents I knew 
of, which describe installing DocBook, and couldn't find any pointer to the 
SGML ISO character entities.

BTW, To fix the above error, all I had to do was install the entity 
definition files, which take the form 'iso-*.gml', (though the ones I found 
are potentially stale, which is why I'm asking) and create a catalog file 
that maps each PUBLIC identifier for one of these files to the SGML version. 
  Then, I placed the path to this file in my SGML_CATALOG_FILES environment 
variable, *before* the docbook.cat that was included with the XML DTD.  I 
don't know whether the first PUBLIC -> SYSTEM identifier mapping is supposed 
to take precedence over any following ones, but it seems to work this way 
with OpenJade 1.3.

(I just thought I'd write up the above paragraph, as I had surprising 
difficulty finding this information in the mailing list archives, though 
maybe I was just unlucky in which of my search hits I chose to read, first.)
