Conclusion

We have rounded out our view of DTD. We have discovered a powerful metaformat with which we can shape XML documents. But what good is it to Flash programmers? After all, the current Flash parser is not a validating parser—it will not read in external files such as DTD.

Clearly, there is no value in the runtime use of DTD. But DTD has a critical role in the production process. DTD informs co-developers in your organization and elsewhere how to make XML files that are compliant with your application. It will allow you to test them efficiently.
