I was initially frustrated with SAX's lack of support for accessing the DTD. Unlike the other
XML efforts (XSchema, XSL, etc.) DTDs are not written as XML and it would be nice to access
the DTD's internals as well as. I've come to understand you point about SAX being low level,
but I'm still not sure I agree with it to the point of excluding DTD handling.

So I'm rolling my own library for DTDs similarly to the way SAX is meant for the actual xml
