If you're doing this on a web page in order to send it to the client, you can
cheat a little.  For example, when creating a WML page to send to a WAP phone, I
sometimes cheat by using:
Response.ContentType = "text/vnd.wap.wml"
Response.Write("<?xml version='1.0'?>")
Response.Write("<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC '-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.1//EN'

The only other way I can think of is to do something like:

boolValue = oXMLDOMDocument.loadXML(xmlString)

where xmlString is:
xmlString = "<?xml version='1.0'?>"
xmlString = xmlString & "<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC '-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.1//EN' "
xmlString = xmlString & "'http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml_1.1.xml'>"

Then you create/append the rest of the tree.

There's probably a more elegant way, but ...

Subject:  DOM DocumentType

In the DOM the DocumentType is a read-only attribute of the Document
interface. If I am creating a DOM structure in memory from some program
data, how do I set the DocumentType?
