Another alternative could be implemented now based solely on XML 1.0. Consider using external parameter entity references. The DTD "fragment" would get included in the main doc's DTD. See the report entitled "W3C XML Specification DTD" for a well documented case study in the use of parameter entities in XML DTDs: http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/06/xmlspec-report.htm -John xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
