Hi All,

I am interested in studying and up and down of technologies. I just read the
article in XML.COM
about how good XML schema is. They mention that the only strength of DTD
over XML schema is it's hugh deployment base and amount of supporting tools.

For those DTD lovers (if any exist), do you really think XML Schema is a
master over DTD? Anything you see DTD is doing better than XML Schema?
Anything XML Schema just doesn't do right?

Besides, when XML Schema rules, will DTD be migrated to XML Schema smoothly?

thanks. good day.
