We are looking for a good general purpose DTD for a web publishing framework. We have started growing our own, but are spending some time searching to determine if one already exists that is more thorough.
We have been looking at those available from TEI and DTD.com. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks, Russ

I think that the best thing to do is search around for some that might fit your style and specifications.
However, I think that you will probably want to creat you own will implementing various features of other DTDs.

Russ,
Whether or not you should use a standard is entirely dependent on your needs and the requirements of any systems that will produce or consume the documents you're trying to define. If you're creating a structure that will only be used internally, then (as Ray says) you're better off building one from scratch or modifying an existing standard that's out there. If you need to communicate with other systems, then the problem is a little trickier - you need to make sure that all of the systems in the audience for the document agree on what that document needs to contain.
