Many thanks to C. M. Sperberg-McQueen who hrlped me solve part of my
The message I had (Illegal character ';' in DTD subset; at: ;;; This fil)
does indeed correspond to a comment line (a Lisp like one according to
C.M.S.Mc) in a dtd.ced file.
but this is only half of the mystery solved.
Indeed, the problem I described occurs on my laptop whereas my desktop
machine reads the same file and ignores the opening Lisp like comment.
So the subsidiary question is "Does anyone (C.M.S.Mc ?) know how I can tell
emacs not to interpret those first few lines ?
Many thanks to whoever can help.
