Dean,

Perhaps it's better to point directly to
http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema.dtd
or to something like talked about in
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlschema-1/#normative-schemaSchema
  -> an XMLSchema.xsd

Err; why isn't it used then? (above, I'm talking about validating
schemas, not SVGs.)

I meant: Wouldn't a schema (XMLSchema.xsd) be more appropriate to
validate the SVG 1.1 schema?

Sorry, I omitted a word, and switched another. I meant:

Would it make sense to change the doctype of the SVG 1.1 *schema* to 
reference a
public schema definition, via http, so that

<!DOCTYPE schema PUBLIC "[...]"
  "http://www.w3.org/[*.xsd]">

I'm sorry for the confusion :)

I'm rearranging stuff in my copy of the SVG 1.1 Schema, and need to
validate the results. In the doctype declaration of the schema,
"XMLSchema.dtd" is referenced; I just thought it might be better if this
would be changed to "http:/[...]XMLSchema.xsd".

Thanks,

Tobi
