OK, good. It sounds like we're all on the same page now.

If I can get to packaging xhtml (all versions) in the next few days
I'll let you know. Then we can do the changes.

Nothing more for now. You gave all the needed info. BTW, I know
exactly how you feel.
You can safely tune out of the conversation now, Adam. (Any replies

I think Silvestre has a good idea asking that the docs be included
with the package. The larger implication being that any w3 dtd package
should come with the corresponding docs. Of course, such a plan would
necessitate a rethinking of the doc-html-w3 package, which is already
quite large at 45 MB installed size. Yikes! (see Bug#116098)
As the doc-html-w3 maintainer Francesco Lovergine pointed out in a
reply to the above bug report, half of this (22MB) comes from the
MathML docs. So maybe MathML would be an exception to the idea that
w3-dtd-mathml (my package) include the docs. IMO, it wouldn't fair to
force 22MB of MathML docs on someone who only wishes to use mathml
e.g. within docbook.
The doc-w3-html package would then only have to contain docs for the
stuff in sgml-data. Hmmm, but then the name doc-html-w3 is misleading.
I appear to be converging on the idea of having an sgml-data-doc (or
similar) package, and putting the rest of the w3 docs in with the
corresponding dtd packages. Seems downright sensible. Ugh. Major

Tune out & focus on the boot floppies. They're sort of important:-)
