On the contrary.  View Source is essential.  Read DTD is nice-to-have. 
And for something reasonably complex, like for example DocBook or HTML, 
in my experience it's *easier* to learn by View Source.  Anyhow, I'd 
rather have a program read the DTD for me and tell me where I got the 
instance wrong.  Reading moderately-complex DTDs with lots of parameter 
entities can be immensely difficult. -Tim
