Creating XMLDocument

Hi All,

I am busy writing an API for XMLDocuments which will wrap
the classes supplied in Oracle's parser (v2) to
'hide' some of the details.

I have managed the add / remove and edit methods for 'items',
and methods to move through the document tree.
(I use 'item' to refer to {tag attributes...}data{/tag} )
I have an 'Item' class which allows add/del/upd of attributes,
data and the tag name.

I would like to know how to create a new (arbitrary) document -
How do I create the Root item ( the one with the DocType Name ) ?
Do I need to specify a DTD first? if so, how would I do this (DTDs would be
on a web server, all documents to be created would probably have a DTD
set-up and made available on the web server)

Thanks in advance
