This is fine, you should have created two new modules:
 - one to hold your new classes
 - one to hold your revised mixes (p-elements, para-level)

Please do NOT do that. DO NOT touch or rename any regular
BITS modules. Just call your modules in (invoke them) in
the DTD BEFORE the existing BITS modules, and yours will
override. In XML, the first invocation of a Parameter
Entity takes effect and overrides all others. It will be
as if no definition exists but yours.

Your DTD will look approximately like this:
Note yours are called in BEFORE the default ones.



Unless you also changed a model or attribute, leave
alone. It will use your new parameter entities for
para-level and p-elements, because you called them
in first.

Yes, it is in the DTD, where the customizations are
invoked. DO not remove what is there, just add
your new modules. You need to state:



in that order. Everything else will remain the same
as it was before you modified.

Yes, this was necessary. Any new modules should be named in
this new Module of Modules. There should be NO modified

Yes, this was necessary. So now your DTD should be calling in
three Modules of Modules: yours, that for BITS (unchanged),
that for JATS (unchanged).

Hope this helps.
