I had to do this once. I used the following command
from the shell prompt to put the document type
declaration into a comment:

perl -pe 's/(<!DOCTYPE[^>]*>)/<!-- $1 -->/' doc.xml > doc_no_doctype.xml

At the DOS command prompt, the command would be:

perl -pe "s/(<!DOCTYPE[^>]*>)/<!-- $1 -->/" doc.xml > doc_no_doctype.xml

Note that these perl commands assume that the document type
declaration appears on a single line and does not contain
any ">" characters before the ">" character that terminates
the document type declaration.

Best regards,
