* Mallikarjuna Sangappa
| Is it possible to specify numbers as attribute values in a XML
| DTD. If so let me know. Thanks in advance.

There are two main answers to this:

 - with a DTD: not really. You can give it the type NMTOKEN, and then
 write software to check it yourself.

 - with an XML schema: yes. XML schemas have number, integer, decimal
 and real data types. With a schema you can also constrain the range.
 Note that XML schemas are currently in their first working draft,
 which means that they _will_ change.
