 If your dtd allows omitting end tags, it is an sgml dtd, not an xml dtd.
You can't omit end tags in xml.  Nor can you have a '</>' construction.
That's why the Microsoft parser give an error, it's an xml-only parser.
Look for an xml version of the dtd, and make, convert, or use xml versions
of the documents. Or use sgml tools.
