Not at all, and that's the point. You won't be able to place
elements from one DTD inside elements from another, unless the
enclosing element has an ANY content model. What takes work and
thought is figuring out how the content models of the various elements
should be extended (or not) to incorporate elements from other DTDs.
I don't see how *any* tools whatever can help you much with this,
except in the mechanical parts.

In that case, full speed ahead.
