Thanks.  I had meant to reply to the list, but apparently I hit the  
wrong button.

Actually, restarting emacs was all that I needed.  I thought that  
simply closing and reopening the file would force it to reload the  
dtd, but I was wrong.   I apologize for not letting you know that I  
had solved the problem before you wrote your reply, but yesterday was  
just one of those days...  The nXML info is helpful in any case.
