Huh?  I thought that feature was SGML only!

I looked in my nutshell XML book.  It says, indeed, that conditional
sections are not allowed in the internal subset.  I think I see a sort
of painful sideways way to get this effect by conditional inclusion of
entities, but -- bletch!  Barf!  It's ugly, ugly, ugly.  And involves
modifying the document itself every time you want to change the
conditionalization, which is unacceptable.
