Re: extending XHTML
Are there other alternatives for this solution, other than supporting and providing a custom DTD, such that the document will both validate and display correctly? The custom dtd only need be as large as your current internal subset, it can include the xhtml dtd by reference, so it's probably easier to support things in that form than having an internal subset on every document. A browser will correctly (not) display the internal subset if it is browsing xhtml rather than html (in particular if it is sent with an xml mime type). mozilla for example automatically does the right thing in this case, IE requires a stylesheet to display XHTML if using an XML parser (it can be a one-line stylesheet that simply copies the entire document). So that is another alternative. The third of course is simply omit the doctype from the distributed files (since the browser won't use it anyway).
