Use DTDs; they will help with a small percentage of your business-logic
validation and you'll have to write code to do the rest.  When next-gen
schemas come along, they'll cover a somewhat larger portion of your
business-logic validation in a nice declarative way, and you'll be
able to retire some of your code.  But not all.  -Tim
