Excerpt from http://www.oclc.org/fred/docs/about-fred.html

	As an electronic publisher, OCLC receives tagged text from several data
	sources. Often, this tagged text is not valid SGML since it does not

	must build data transformations, databases, and interfaces for this
	tagged text. 
	To address the lack of DTDs, Fred can automatically build DTDs from
	tagged text. [...]
