Re: [xml-dev] ID/IDREF is evil

I would add a fourth:

(d) DTD is an anachronism - a response to a pre-XSD situation.

DTD has no perspective of further development. Technology has taken another path (XSD, and DTD-agnostic XDM as the foundation of XML processing). I think the main reason for DTD usage is inertia.

 I avoid DTDs if I can for three reasons:
 (a) I can never remember the syntax
 (b) I can never understand the errors when I get it wrong
 (c) they don't survive XSLT transformation.
