sgml declaration


which is the correct SGML declaration for XML?

I found three:

1a) <!SGML -- SGML Declaration for XML --
       "ISO 8879:1986 (ENR)"

1b) <!SGML -- SGML Declaration for XML --
       "ISO 8879:1986 (WWW)"

	both in http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-sgml-xml-971215
	Comparison of SGML and XML


2) <!SGML -- SGML Declaration for XML --
     "ISO 8879:1986 (WWW)"

	in http://www.sgmlsource.com/8879rev/n1955.htm
	ISO 8879 TC2

I understand the difference between (1a) and (1b), but there is a difference
between (1b) and (2):

	      95 170 ...

	      45 46 58 ...


                   58 95 ...

                   45-46 183 ...

As far as I know (1b) is correct, since XML 1.0 reads:

  [5] Name  ::=    (Letter | '_' | ':') (NameChar)*

which means, a Name may start (NAMESTRT) with a ':'

But I'm not sure...
Could someone please confirm or correct my assumption.

Thanks in advance for an answer!
