Re: #PCDATA with other elements

You could use:-
<!ELEMENT sth (#PCDATA | other_element | another_element)*>
Note the terminating "*" which is required for mixed content specifications.
Unfortunately you cannot dictate the order of elements in a mixed-content
specification.  So, like in this example, you have to the  "|" (choice)
