BTW, this page[1] includes information about the changes from:
- doc-v11 to doc-v12
- doc-v12 to doc-v13
- doc-v13 to doc-v20

...including this bit between doc-v12 to doc-v13:
All v1.2 docs will work fine as v1.3 DTD. The main change is the  
addition of a @class attribute to every element, which enables the  
"extra-css" section in the skinconf to be put to good use.
