Subject: DOCBOOK: Simplified DocBook is simply broken

The following report arrived a day or two ago.

| Hello,
| The document below validates against the Simplified DocBook XML DTD
| version 1.0b2, but has multiple errors when validated against the
| DocBook XML DTD version 4.1.2.

And it's true. Simplified DocBook is seriously broken in a couple of
ways. I'll put out a beta 3 next week that fixes these errors.

                                        Be seeing you,
