Subject: DOCBOOK: Errors in iso-num.ent ?

A user of our XML Validator
(http://www.stg.brown.edu/service/xmlvalid/) reported some errors in the
official docbookx.dtd, specifically in the called entity file iso-num.ent.

These errors occurred because of the way that the unicode character
replacements for the isonum entities are handled for the XML markup

I discovered this when I discovered that the official docbook iso-num.ent
file already deals with some cases of this problem, namely < and
&. However, it does not deal with " and ; so I'm thinking
the same hack needs to be used for these as well (the hack being to make a
decimal code replacement rather than a unicode replacement for these

I made these changes in a local copy of the docbook dtd. Compare

Am I right in my diagnosis of this problem, or should I instead be making
some modification to our XML Validator?
