   The FM9 DocBook starter kit uses DocBook 4.1.2 for XML and DocBook 4.1 
for SGML, but your own application can use a later version, whether you 
start from scratch or base your work on the starter kit. To create your own 
EDD from the starter kit EDD and update to a later version, open the 
starter kit EDD, then use the StructureTools > Import DTD command. In the 
resulting dialog box, specify the DTD for the version of DocBook you want 
to use as the DTD to import.
