Karl, Kaja,

   Jim, can you enlighten us?
   (I get the same error in my Linux mozilla, FWIW.)

Sorry; beats heck out of me.  

I had accidentally uploaded a not-current dtd (which is why it had the 
wrong name).  I've uploaded the current one
along with a revided version of the doc
and a sample file
.  Sorry about the mis-upload.

I have checked the 1.00 with my DTD syntax checker (called dtdcmd.py;
it parses a trivial XML doc against the DTD, as I understand it), and it
likes it.  But IE also fails to display the DTD.  It likes the
.ctan, though.  Dunno.

Please forgive the docs; they were really meant to be read only by me at
the moment.

   Hi Karl

   but when I tried to open the ctan-1.00.dtd file from this page,
   my browser (mozilla, recently upgraded at work) returned an error:

     XML Parsing Error: syntax error
     Location: ftp://joshua.smcvt.edu/pub/ctan/ctan-1.00.dtd
     Line Number 16, Column 1:

     <!ELEMENT CTAN (package)*>

   Do you know why? Would it mean that this version of mozilla
   doesn't support XML?
