A DTD is a terse thing with a simple macro mechanism that makes people
yearn for an XML syntax
and more powerful abstractions. It can only handle simple structures.
An XSD is a verbose thing with multiple abstractions that makes people
yearn for a terser syntax
and less to learn. It still can only handle simple structures.
