Using notations to identify content formats

I have created a DTD that parses data in XML for a web application. The
DTD identifies valid values for many data elements using enumerated
attributes, but I also would like to identify formats for certain data
elements (e.g., dates as nine-digit numeric strings). Unfortunately,
there seems to be a paucity of information regarding how to create
formal specs for the documentation of notations in XML. Any suggestions
would be greatly appreciated.
