DTDs are an integral part of XML 1.0. They make up the essential dance steps
of basic validation.
XML Schema will, like it or not, be used by just about everyone doing
industrial-strength validation. It is like ballroom dancing, somewhat rigid
and it takes awhile to learn, but its okay once you get the hang of it.
I think RELAX NG is a little like swing dancing, free-wheeling fun.
Schematron is a little like ballet, elegant in its simplicity and precision.
There is a time and place for all kinds of dancing, suitable for different
needs and occasions. Learning all four dances is not a bad idea.
