Like i written one xml like this..


How to write a DTD, which validates the value of SSN as numeric.

The question's off-topic for XSL-List, but the short answer is that DTDs are (with trivial exceptions) datatype-blind: you can't "validate as [fill in datatype here]" anything with a DTD. You might want to take a look at XSchema, which will replace/enhance DTDs (including datatype support) using XML syntax... and then, of course, ask further questions on XML-L or XML-DEV. :)
