There is a DTD available for Ant build scripts--the base tasks--that's
referenced in the FAQ. If you can't find the URL, let me know.

(I have mixed feelings about Xeena. It's good, but not for our XML
stuff, since it becomes unusable after you get a few hundred elements in
the XML file. It also takes forever to parse a large DTD. All-in-all a
good tool, but only good for small/medium sized projects.)
