Thank you for your comment.

The entity declaration for tbl.entry.mdl in calstblx.dtd
is not actually used in the DTD.  The tbl.entry.mdl
parameter entity in dbpoolx.mod overrides it,
and that declaration starts with #PCDATA.  So the DTD does conform.

If you want to explore the DTD interactively, you might 
look at the LiveDTD version at:


If you click on "table" in the left column element list,
you can trace the content model through the DTD's various
parameter entities.
