Thanks for your comments, but, not sure I understand DTD to HTML.... We don't 
deliver in html, if that's what you're thinking. At least, not at this point. 
Everything is pdf.

I found something called XMLMind, which is written in Java, available for 
Linux and Windows and the the standard version is free. The cripples don't 
look fatal so far.

By validation I mean the editor is DTD aware; that is, it won't let you put in 
tags that would violate the DTD, or if it does it tells you in loud words. 
XMLMind does that. I was hoping not to spend too much time actually editing 
DTDs. If I get into customization, etc., I might do a bit, but at the moment 
I'm still learning about the whole concept.
