 Okay, looking bit closer to our XML web-site I've found we are
 relatively near the HTML 4.01 Transitional format. Most of pages now
 can be built HTML compliant without further modifications (very often
 "bug" is an <html xmlns=""> attributes which was recently almost
 But our first problem is that XML files are completely invalid
 themselves, and this may cause HTML validity breakage. In short summary:
   - intensively used custom elements without DTD/schema support;
   - using limited Simplified DocBook XML Customization DTD (man-refs problem);
 Now I'm pretty sure the following way should be used here:
   1. work close with <hrs> to achieve powerful and lightweight DTD;
   2. support authors/editors with validity tools ("make valid");
   3. work even close with <hrs> to provide correct XSLT stylesheets
      for our own tags (Website XSL looks good enough already);
