Subject: Re: [docbook] w3.org won't serve DTD imbedded in Docbook generated output - but only to IE

Actually, postprocessing is not necessary if you are generating chunked 
output.  There is a stylesheet parameter that controls the system doctype 
output to the XHTML files:

<xsl:param name="chunker.output.doctype-system">foofara.dtd</xsl:param>
