It has some DTD autocompletion (e.g. a menu with ELEMENT, ATTLIST etc after
you type "<!" but that's about it. After that you seem to be on your own so
it isn't a great deal of help!

I'm wondering about ditching DTDs and going straight to XML Schemas, but
worried about tools support and adoption by third parties - because we want
to sell a product to third parties which means that they will have to work
with our DTD or XML Schema to communicate with it.

Do you have any comments about this? Were these considerations for you?
