Sorry, but I think these two are contraddicting... How can you have a
DTD if you don't know the elements that are in your XML file? Either you
generate a DTD depending on your Apache configuration (so for whatever
module gets compiled in or loaded as DSO) or you cannot properly
"validate" (in the strict term of validation against a DTD) the source.
