Off-topic: XML and DTD

This is off-topic, but...

what you need is a DOCTYPE declaration in your XML document pointing to the
DTD, like this:


where foo is the name of your root element and the string in quotes is a
relative or absolute URI pointing to the DTD that is associated with the
document. Typically, this appears just after the <?xml...?> declaration.
When a validating parser reads this document, it will load the specified DTD
and validate the document against it.
