The docs/samples etc. We should have an XMLValidate target in the build 
file as a check to make sure everything matches it's DTD.

I've done the work to get local entities into Ant over the last couple of 
months, so we can now use style without requiring net access to the 
docbook DTDs (you can reference them locally). This will make validating 
all our docs nice and easy.

Validation *done* by Latka is fine, it's the source I'm worried about. 
Some of the original docbook files weren't compliant with the DTD.
