you can. But my advice is to impose valiadtion either using Schema or DTD.

If you give me a choice, my choice is Schema, why? because it is enhanced version of DTD as well as it looks like XML file and easy to read.

Hi Prabhu,

Thanks for reply.


I want to have both DTD and Schema because I want to validate xml using schema but some part of my xml is in another xml file (?xml version="1.0" sandalone="no" )

DTD or schema has nothing to do with the standalone attribute in the XML prolog.
If standalone is true ; it means that the resources to validate the xml is available locally(Doesn't depend on external entity..(but nothing it says about the kind of validation that you are planning to impose.)

Hi Rahul,

Thanks for reply. So can I have two xml files which validates with schema and one xml file includes another ( standalone="no" )?

Regards

Rajesh
