SYNOPSIS

 use Alvis::Document::Type;

 # Create a new instance
 my $t=Alvis::Document::Type->new(defaultType=>'text',
                                  defaultSubType=>'html');
 if (!defined($t))
 {
    die('Ugh!');
 }

 my ($doc_type,$doc_sub_type)=$t->guess($doc_text);
 if (!(defined($doc_type) && defined($doc_sub_type)))
 {
    die("Guess what? " . $t->errmsg()); 
 }
