That said, if you are concerned about DTD availability,
we still have a lot of documents using 4.1.2, and there
are a few using 4.3. I had some reason for converting
things to 4.3 a couple years ago, but I don't remember
what it was. I don't remember us ever embracing 4.2.
Anything newer than 4.3 is unlikely to be supported by
Yelp at this time.
