We are trying to put together a DTD and have run into the following problem:

How do i represent this behavior in a DTD? 

<Student type="high school" or "college" or "graduate">

<House type="condo" or "townhouse" or "carraige">

In other words, i want both of these elements to have a "type" attribute.
But i want to define "type" differently based on it's context. 
Is this possible? Is it easier in a schema?


As a sidelight, how do most people create their DTDs? Using a tool such as
XmlAuthority? By hand? Can anyone suggest a tool?
