How might I include in my P5 DTD the Unicode entity references from my P4
DTD? Unlike the old Pizza Chef, Roma does not seem to have a mechanism for
including these. And because my project requires numerous entries of long
esses, ligatures, carets, etc., I'd prefer not having to type a numerical
code point every time. Is there a simple way to convert the old entity refs
and either insert them into the P5 DTD or create an extensions file?

If you do not use the Debian packages hosted, you can 
stop reading now.

I have changed the package I maintain for the eXist XML database
from version "20060613" to "1.1", following changes in the source.
This has the unfoirtunate side effect that Debian/Ubuntu systems
think it is an _older_ version, so do not bother to upgrade.

If you use this eXist package, I recommend that you
remove it, and then install again. If you don't end
up with version 1.1, something has gone wrong!

If you pick up my Roma-related package
to put the TEI P5 Guidelines into eXist, you need
this upgrade.

With apologies for being cryptic, but I thought
I had better alert the small band of folks who
take advantage of this stuff
