I noticed that there are only head definitions for howto and document
DTDs.  When authoring other documents, you can't put some of the
information in.  After looking at the other DTDs, I don't know if it
would be valuable to add the head elements in or not.

Actually, I think in my copy I broke v 1.x How To compatibility.  At
least with my sample document the questions and answers were not
translated correctly.  That's why I left the original stylesheet.

I see that.  I've been trying to get the meta element from v 2.0 DTDs to
make it into the final rendition.  Right now if you add a meta tag to a
v 2.0 how to or document xml file you will get non-validating html from
the pelt skin.  Even if you don't include a meta tag, you get an empty
<meta></meta> element in the output and the html no longer validates.

Hopefully I can get that figured out.
