I was following your argument until I got to the above paragraph. If by
process you mean validate then this applies to documents without a DTD as
well since the element type declaration exists in the DTD. If you aren't
talking about validation then I don't see why needing the schema is
necessary for processing the document in some other manner. Or are you
refering to documents that have both a DTD and a schema?
Can you please clarify?
