I'm guessing this difference is more caused by MSIE "mind reading magic"
rather than a bug in mozilla.  How is the browser supposed to know how to
locate these things without an update to their catalog files?  Probably
there is some way to modify mozilla's catalog file to pick up this stuff.

Another possibility is using SYSTEM rather than PUBLIC entity definitions
and committing those entities to our style directory.

My main concern is making the build process (and the testing process) as
simple as possible.  Requiring a download of another set of files in order
to build the docs will get me close to a -1, so I think we'll need to
commit them eventually anyway.
