Subject: Removing xml:base from the SGML DTD

/ Karl Eichwalder <ke@gnu.franken.de> was heard to say:
| Without the patches 1/ and 2/ onsgmls will not parse an SGML using the
| supplied SGML declaration (docbook.dcl).
| 1/
| Error message:
| echo '<!DOCTYPE book SYSTEM "docbook.dtd">
| <book></book>
| ' | onsgmls -E 1 -s docbook.dcl -
| onsgmls:dbpoolx.mod:815:17:E: character ":" invalid: only "CDATA", "ENTITIES", "ENTITY", "ID", "IDREF", "IDREFS", "NAME", "NAMES", "NMTOKEN", "NMTOKENS", "NOTATION", "NUMBER", "NUMBERS", "NUTOKEN", "NUTOKENS" and parameter separators allowed
| onsgmls:I: maximum number of errors (1) reached; change with -E option
| Because of the colon in "xml:base" I propose to change the SGML
| declaration as follows:

The DocBook TC discussed this today and proposed solving the problem
by removing xml:base from the SGML DTD.

any objections to removing it?
