DTD is easier and better supported by tools but less powerful.
XML Schema is more powerful but more complex and not as much supported by tools than DTD is.

wsad 5 supports both.
But its big piece of software.
When you really have a fast internet connection you might consider to download test version from IBM.
But I am sure there are leaner alternatives for the task.
