The XSL validation code should then be duplicated in each of them? And in some cases, people need their own specific stylesheets...thats a perfect opportunity to create incompatible documents. And versioning of document structures can be done on a much easier way by using DTD. But, in case that the above isnt an issue, the question that I have is: on which way do we gain performance, By using validating parser and processing it through a light stylesheet or by using nonvalidating parser and processing it through a heavier (validating) stylesheet?
