Hi Lutz,

The only way I've found to do this is to build the entire DOCTYPE
declaration using the formatting-instruction flow object.  (This is a jade

Define the flow object as described in the documentation:

(declare-flow-object-class formatting-instruction
  "UNREGISTERED::James Clark//Flow Object Class::formatting-instruction")

When you want to emit the DOCTYPE declaration, use something like this:

(make formatting-instruction
    data: (string-append "<"
    "!ENTITY entityname SYSTEM 'filename.gif' NDATA FAX>"

Use this instead of (make document-type).

If you use character entity references for the left angle bracket (&#60; for
'<') you wouldn't have to use (string-append) like the example I used.  Just
use a single string for the data: characteristic.

Hope this helps,
Paul Tyson
