May I please ask the experts on this kind list as to their opinion

In other words, *should* or *must* a decent XSLT processor support XML
DTD's for source documents input to an XSLT transform.

Secondly, to what degree are DTDs regarded as "legacy" (and I guess
subject to future deprecation)?

Thanks in advance for all replies.

It's the parser that feeds the xslt processor that deals with the schema, be it DTD or relax NG or W3C schema. So I guess
the simple answer is 'none'?

I don't see DTD's going away for a long time, just that
few are writing new ones due to the enhancements available
in more recent schema types.
