msxml contentmodel

 We are trying to write an editor application that uses XML via the
 MSXML parser. What we plan to do is to let the editor read the DTD and
 then provide users with an interactive environment that they use to
 fill out the content of the xml document. 

 The problem we have is that MSXML does not provide access to the
 content model of the DTD through the Document class. The API it
 provides is mainly through the Document class. We are not sure whether
 Microsoft intended that the interface to the DTD content model not be
 available (directly or indirectly) to the application. Could anyone
 shed light on how to use MSXML to access the DTD content model, or
 does anyone know if some of the other parsers (e.g., NXP, LARK) 
 provide an interface to the DTD content model?  Also, how does this
 relate to SGML groves as I have seen discussed on XML-DEV at various
