Damnit! :)

Actually, I haven't put together any profiles at all.  I am trying to develop
a system by which profiles are specified with DTDs, as well as some other
files, so that they can easily be modified or created.

Since my knowledge of XML is extremely thin (reading a book on it, and just
got into chapter 3), I have to ask questions about things work before
designing a system to use XML.  I often end up just sitting and thinking about
how something should work for periods of time.  Usually I get some idea.
