Your examples parse, but do not do what the original questioner was asking
about (produce a valid document).

DTDs were developed before namespaces, and the two don't play particularly
well together; to a DTD, a namespace declaration *is* an attribute.
Personally, I wouldn't bother trying to make a namespace document valid; it
can be done, but it's a bit difficult.  Moreover, I think the original
poster was using MSIE 5, which adds the odd quirk that all namespace
declarations must be declared in the DTD as #FIXED attributes.

Anand, can you post the whole (short) document and DTD, along with MSIE's error?
