XML DTD with revst/revend

Thanks, Paul. I know it's hard to be the bearer of bad news. 🙂

In light of this roadblock, I wonder what my options are for going with
processing instructions instead. Can a FOSI deal with custom PIs? I see that it
knows about Arbortext touchup PIs, but can it deal with 3rdparty PIs? I've read
the 5.1 help in this regard, but it's not clear to me if something like a UDT
could be used or not.

thanks, all.
