Of course Eliot's a crank, but I agree with him entirely. In fact, I'd like to mention an even greater -- the cost of fiddling with the XML spec when there is now such an enormous amount of work going on based on the XML 1.0 recommendation. Like Eliot, I believe that DTDs should remain the basic interchange format for XML document schemas. If someone wants to give me a schema in XML-Data, or in MMLML (Megginson's Meta-Language Markup Language), or whatever, I have no objection, as long as I get the standard DTD as well.
