As an aside, might be worth mentioning OCLC's Fred project here. http://www.oclc.org/fred/ Excerpt from http://www.oclc.org/fred/docs/about-fred.html As an electronic publisher, OCLC receives tagged text from several data sources. Often, this tagged text is not valid SGML since it does not have or conform to a Document Type Definition (DTD). Despite this, OCLC must build data transformations, databases, and interfaces for this tagged text. To address the lack of DTDs, Fred can automatically build DTDs from tagged text.
