that's one way of declaring the Tite namespace. however, if you then
use (eg) <tite:b>, it will not validate against the DTD (which, we
were assured, is what the vendors like to use).

no. there is no such concept of including a namespace on the element name.

honest, you just don't need do anything at all if you use the DTD   - it
makes things work Like Magic for you.
