well not really, the XHTML DTD goes to extraordinary lengths to allow
prefixes to be specified, by setting a parameter entity in the local
subset or elsewhere, (which means that the dtd never refers to an
element name directly, always via a parameter entity) a document that
uses prefixes after setting the appropriate entities may well be dtd
valid. All XHTML rendering agents will render prefixed XHTML. The XHTML
spec does then have this bizare conformance clause that says that
despite all the technical effort in the specification of the DTD and in
implementations to allow prefixes, a document dhouldn't use them, but I
don't understand that clause s tend to ignore it:-)

of course the whatwg inspired html5 proposals take another approach
altogether and just define the language in the text, and via a parsing
algorithm, with no dtd or schema at all.
