Hello everybody,
I have a question about the SVG DTD. The current SVG specification
(specifically http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/svgdtd.html#Introduction)
states that "A dated version of the flattened DTD will always be
available from
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11-flat-2009XXXX.dtd." The
most recent flat version currently available under
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD is
svg11-flat-20030114.dtd. This version obviously does not reflect the
changes in the second edition from June 2010.

My questions are:
1) Is there an uptodate SVG DTD? If not is there any machine
   readable document that specifies
   - which child element an element is allowed to have
   - which attributes an element is allowed to have, default values
     for these attributes etc.?
2) I have read somewhere (on this mailing list?) that the SVG WG is
   "moving away from DTDs" (or something like this). Towards what is
   it moving? What is the recommended machine readable form of
   (parts of) the specification?

Thank you very much and best wishes
Lutz
