That's a modular DTD.  Giving you full details is not really within the
scope of the validator, though a lower-level parser could help expand it
for you.  Amongst online tools, code valet[1] will give you the most
information ( http://valet.webthing.com/code/ ; see also the examples
at css.nu )

No, that doesn't define the ELEMENT <input>.  A quick glance at the
DTD suggests you have to include the forms module yourself to do that.
Does your validator report not complain that there's no such element
as <input> too?
