If you give me a single, well-formed XML document, I can *always*
write a DTD that describes its structure.
If you give me a list of structural traits shared by a class of XML
documents (otherwise known as a "document type"), I may not be able to
provide an XML 1.0 DTD that applies to all possible documents in the
same class but to none outside of the class. I may not even be able
to write a DTD at all.
All the best,
