No, unfortunately. DTDs are not namespace-aware, and they work on
the surface form of the document. There is no way to declare anything
about an element in a namespace, only about an element with a given
If you want to mix DTDs and namespaces, you will have to use
consistent prefixes everywhere. Whether namespaces gain you anything
with that constraint depends on your application.
We expect one of the advantages of schemas to be that they will
provide a namespace-aware equivalent of DTDs.
