This supersedes the patch I supplied recently to bug
#548788.

Changes:

* Switch from using ldquo/rdquo everywhere to <quote>.

* While doing the above, corrected a typo where two
left quotes were used
around "(".

* Eliminate rdquo entities used after xref tags; this
looks like a
workaround for an old stylesheet problem, but now
results in duplicate
quotes.

* Eliminate the ancient commentary regarding the XML
DTD: "We've included
one on the <acronym>CD</acronym>, but it hasn't been
officially adopted by
the <acronym>OASIS</acronym> DocBook Technical
Committee yet."

* Wrap blocks of sample XML and SGML in CDATA. This
was primarily
motivated by the & problem noted in this bug
report, and the
realization that the sample code is much easier to
maintain this way.

* Switch from 3.1.4 XML DTD references to 4.2.

* Typo: "indentified"

* s/.sgm/.xml in sample internal DTD snippets for XML
documents

* All sample attribute values are now quoted

* Update the emacs variables at the end

* Eliminate empty closing tags in a bibliograpy example

    I'd be happy to apply the patch, but you forgot to attach it.

    Also, I can't find bug 548788.

    Ok, one year late, here's the patch. Sorry about that.

    I don't remember what the missing bug might have been at
    this point, but I doubt it matters.

    I believe all of the changes described here that are still relevant to the current version have been made or will be made during the copy-edit for the 2nd Edition
