ALFS DTD Syntax Doc v3.1 (stage element)

This example (copied from elsewhere) also has the 
{environment}/{variable} syntax errors in it.

"The environment sub-element allow you to specify an environment 
variable that will be added to the current environment when processing 
the commands of the stage"

This can actually do much more than just "add" an environment variable, 
as the {environment} page documents quite well. I'm torn between 
suggesting that this text be fixed, or just left out in favor of the 
link to the {environment} page that is already present. If you keep the 
text, it has to be kept up to date with the master description of what 
the element does. If it is removed, then there's no reason no to do the 
same thing to nearly every other page :-(
