Kind of makes you wonder how we got by the last couple of years...

Perhaps I'm atypical, but most of my XML data is based on (if not
validated against) a DTD. If my DTD doesn't mesh with my data, it probably
means that my data is wrong. Reports about the death of DTDs continue to
be greatly exaggerated...
