A DBS configuration file must be a valid XML file. It must begin with a valid XML prolog. For convenience of viewing configurations files in a XSLT capable browser, an optional style sheet declaration may folow. After that, the top level node must be dbsubstconfig. These three lines may simply be copied to start a new file

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?> <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href=""?> <dbsubstconfig> ... </dbsubstconfig>
