If you are referring to unit test execution, putting the DTDs on the 
classpath lets you work with Class.getResource() in the same way as you 
can after the JAR has been built. For example, just copy them in the 
correct package in the classes folder (into which you compiled the 
validator classes to) before running the tests. [Note sure if you can do 
that with Maven, but with Ant it's a snap]

This is not an argument against putting the DTDs on the website, which I 
personally consider good practice.
