It seems that I have not answer the original question.
I thought that 'Thread' document ( published on
www.renderx.com) explains everything about FO Validator.
> Paul - what is a validating DTD?
The DTD from XSL WD is *not* validating, but it is 'illustrative'
( see 'Thread' document ).
> And what is the DTD validating against?
DTD is used to validate a structure of XSL FO stream. .fo file -
not the xsl stylesheet which was / is used to create that .fo file.
> Shouldn't this refer to some sort of a validating parser?
At the first step FO Validator invokes XML4J to validate a stream
of FOs with our 'validating' DTD.
