When we've made up our minds about the tags and such I and Jesse will start
writing that DTD. Like I said before we're just brainstorming and checking
out our possibilities.
The purpose of a DTD (Document Type Definition): it tells you what
tags are valid and what attributes. When somebody writes a new profile, the
DTD will determine what goes in a profile and what is requires (say if you
have an <ln> tag, the DTD will require you to at least provide the source
attribute for example).
