xhtml: adding ELEMENT to dtd

.... or using multiple dtd's for doctype.

sorry if this is an infantile question - scouring an html to xhtml
conversion is not something I often do :-(

QUESTION:

does anyone know how we can add a new ELEMENT to an existing w3
dtd - or tell the doctype to add it or use an additional dtd in
the doctype etc. etc. etc.

BACKGROUND:

anyway - we have a pseudo tag we use for some indexing control on
a site - the tag-set is placed in the head section of an xhtml 1.0
transitional doc.

the w3 validator complains about the tag (and its attribute) when
it appears in the head section of the page - of course - but I
cannot seem to figure out how to add an element such that it will
be allowed in the head section.

have tried things like...

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dt d"
[
<!ELEMENT ourtag EMPTY>

<!ATTLIST ourtag
id CDATA #REQUIRED
>
]>

.... and have even tried redefining the head element to include the
ourtag element etc.

nothing seems to work in a way that allows the validator to succeed

thanks!

p.s. - OH!! Hi y'all!! :-))
