I've seen XML Spy consider DTDs to be "valid" when they had bad mistakes in
them that any other parser would find. I too am part of the cult of Emacs;
when I need to create or edit a W3C schema I load the DTD for schemas into
Emacs with PSGML.
I once wrote a tutorial on using Emacs+PSGML aimed at people who'd never
used Emacs before. When the book I wrote it for went out of print, I put a
PDF of that chapter up for free at http://www.snee.com/bob/sgmlfree/. I'm
amazed at how often it still gets downloaded, and that it's been translated
to Polish and Russian. To those not in the cult of Emacs (picture me making
a smiling, glassy-eyed stare): join us... it's free... it doesn't hurt...
just try it for a week or two...
