Hi David

In my opinion having an external DTD will make future changes easier.
Consider for example the change I've made to skinconf.xml adding a new tag:
I have 4 different project in Forrest, so I had to manually edit skinconf 4
times to modify the DTD to allow the new tag. Having the DTD on a different
file would have make this much easier.

Why do you want the DTD to be external? What are the advantages of changing
what we have now?
