thanks for the reply but will the dtd fade away so there is only xml schema ? //Rille

DTD will become more and more rare sight, but I doubt it will completely disappear for a decade or so. Most new software products support schema over DTD, if applicable, but the huge legacy base out there is still largely DTD-only. Then again, not many applications actually require XML validation in the first place.
