I found these two articles, to say the least, jarring[1,2].

Local Governments, small organizations and individuals have little say in the eventual resolution of these policies.  However, the W3C specifications and validation can be used as a guide for off-line authoring of documents too.  The tools go far beyond beyond simple spell-checking.  While they are rarely in routine use because they cost Enterprise Web Servers precious milliseconds, they are well worth the time to a scholar or researcher working off-line to preserve confidentiality or without access at a remote location.

Using Xerces[3], I've been able to validate (entirely off-line) XML Documents in the following formats:  StratML, JATS Journal Publishing (ANSI), JATS Article Authoring (ANSI), MODS (US LOC), DWML (NOAA) as well as embedded versions in XHTML 1.1.  As soon as I am able to publish examples I will (along with a zip file containing the interlinked XSD Sxhema.  This method is not as "good" as DTD's, but it is much smaller and gets the basics right.
