Can I define an element to type "ANY" in a DTD.
I am writing a program that can receive any xml message as requests and
it it builds an XML response for that. Since I do not know what the incoming
request structure will be, I want to declare an element of type "any" in my
response DTD so that the entire request message can be substituted in place of
type any and still my document conforms to my DTD.
One solution can be that I do not use a DTD at all, there by I'll be free to insert
any well formed tag into my document. But the response that I am building has
other xml elements also that need to be validated against a DTD.
I'll be grateful for your reply.
