<!ELEMENT pidlist (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT searchresult(score,profile_type,profile_link,relevant_sections,institution_id,brief_description,imageurl)>
<!ELEMENT score (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT profile_type (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT profile_link (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT relevant_section (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT institution_id (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT brief_description (#PCDATA)>
