Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] is there a good way to turn off doctype declarations in single and chunked xhtml output?

The default configuration of the w3c combined xhtml+mathml+svg
namespace has xhtml and mathml unprefixed, while svg is prefixed with
svg:. If the stylesheets or customization layer removed the mml:
prefix from MathML, then


might be a valid DTD for xhtml+mathml+svg output.
