Re: building XML while referring to DTD

You can use a DTD parser like the one from wutka

This  parser returns a DTD object, which is similar to the Document object 
in the DOM model...

You can then use the suitable methods of the DTDParser API to get all the 
elements stated in the DTD (method elements() in class DTD) and their 
content models (field item in class DTDElement) and create some kind of 
algorithm in order to use this information to produce a sample xml file.
