Will DTD's become exitinct anytime soon? Clearly XML Schema is the standard right now - with some preffering other options such as Schematron. What I would like to know is are there any advantages and reasons to use DTD's in this day and age.
Why would a person still need to know the at least the basics of DTD's?

I guess they can still be useful for relatively simple doc structures.
