Do you think forrest should have an internal format?

Perhaps all "-//APACHE//DTD XXXX VX.X//XX" should become "plug-in." They will 
be a "content class" installed by default in plugins/ (RING 2). The   
"plug-in" is comprised of an "Apache Adaptor" and "Apache Framework." The 
"plug-in" will transform to XHTML for the RING 0 to do its magic. Other 
formats such as FO, PDF, POD etc. Will still need maintenance and 

p.s. I must compliment this project on its' open minded approach to ideas and 
suggestions. Even when they're "off=the-wall." :-)
