Um, I don't think linuxdoc *has* a DTD or DSSSL files.

OTOH, SGMLtools Lite or whatever *could* support sgmltools v1 or
linuxdoc tools or whatever it is called.  Supposing that software is
already installed, all it would have to do is provide the capability
to wrap around the linuxdoc scripts with it's own 'sgmltools' wrapper.
If anyone wants to do this, apply as a developer at sourceforge.

I approve of one tool which is extensible -- it's name is sgmltools
lite, now a days.  I object to the idea of merging the linuxdoc
perl/ASP or whatever it is back into the sgmltools lite package.
