Re: Document oriented experience reports anyone?
XMLBuddy, Oxygen and no doubt other editors support using DTDs for entities but not for validation, as the XML spec allows a non-validating parser to do. XMLBuddy uses an off-the-shelf parser (XercesJ). The only issue is finding the right feature incantation that makes it work. I believe the industry as a whole is gradually reacting to this common use case. In another forum, Michael Glavassevich wrote: "The JAXP 1.3 Validation API  decouples the process of validation from parsing. You will be able to perform schema validation without also having to turn on the [DTD] validation feature." It's certainly the path of least resistance to Just Do It as opposed to inventing a replacement for DTD entities. If your favorite parser doesn't support this use case, send them a bug report.
