The main disadvantage of DTD's is the lack of declaration of the data types,
every piece of data is a string and that's it. That may not be important
for users reading the generated xml, but it sure is for applications
reading and parsing the xml.

The big advantage of DTD files is simplicity, it's very easy to read and

What would be the benefits of RelaxNG over XSD? I've never used it before
( every company I've worked for uses XSD ).
