Unfortunately, that may not what's being implemented by DOM developers, so I
stand by my statement: there is no guarantee that any given DOM has any given
API to its DTDs (outside of the simple calls included in DOM Level 1), and
whatever it does supply is not likely to follow any standard.

We're all waiting for the Schema group to report out so the DOM WG feels
comfortable implementing a real schema API. Until then, caveat usetor.
