Hi Marc,

Make sure you're looking at the actual error messages, because they tell
you exactly where the problem is.  Each message will feature a filename
and a line, which is where the element occurs that has a validation
error.  For instance, the first error I saw was this:

./Desktops.xml:27: element listitem: validity error : Element listitem
content does not follow the DTD, expecting (calloutlist | glosslist |
bibliolist | itemizedlist | orderedlist | segmentedlist | simplelist |
variablelist | caution | important | note | tip | warning |
literallayout | programlisting | programlistingco | screen | screenco |
screenshot | synopsis | cmdsynopsis | funcsynopsis | classsynopsis |
fieldsynopsis | constructorsynopsis | destructorsynopsis |
methodsynopsis | formalpara | para | simpara | address | blockquote |
graphic | graphicco | mediaobject | mediaobjectco | informalequation |

figure | table | msgset | procedure | sidebar | qandaset | task | anchor
| bridgehead | remark | highlights | abstract | authorblurb | epigraph |
indexterm | beginpage)+, got (CDATA)

Read the first line:  The problem is in Desktop.xml, at line 27.  Inside
the element <listitem> there's a problem.  The DTD expects something
inside the following list, but instead it saw "CDATA", which means text
that's not part of an element.

Generally <listitem> contains a <para> like this:

  <listitem>
    <para>
      Some item 1
    </para>
  </listitem>

So I'd bet you had something like this instead, which is wrong:

  <listitem>
    Some item 1
  </listiem>

Let that be a guide, and see if you can fix the document using the error
messages, as above.
