| Is there any XML editor which does validation based on DTD when I

Yes, this is possible, and SGML editors have been doing this for
years already.

One editor that does this is the Emacs PSGML-mode, but I'm not aware
of any other free editors that do this. XED does let you run a parser
and step through the validation errors while editing.

There are many commercial programs that let you do this.
