[CQ-Contest] XML for Reporting Realtime Scores

The aggregate realtime scores web page I posted during CQWW SSB was 
implemented by developing separate routines to extract the relevant scoring 
info posted by each of the three contestants (N2IC, K1TTT, W9WI) who 
provided periodically updated scores during the contest. Although this 
worked on a small scale, a standardized means of providing realtime scoring 
info is needed in order to expand the system for reporting more than a 
handful of contestants.

As a proposed solution, I've drafted an XML Document Type Definition (DTD) 
for periodically reporting contest results during a contest. Links to the 
DTD and example XML files can be found at:

Comments and suggestions are welcome.
