in reply to Parsing an XML-like definition of an XML-like language to create a parser of the actual data in that language.

As has been noted, the DTD is not really important for trying to parse the input file. You might want to look at XML::Simple as the easiest way to turn that XML structure into a perl data hash.

    Thanks and yes Im tempted enough by this argument because it avoids the potential bug in the DTD and might just have the simplicity to overlook the vendor-reported bug in the XML itself, so Ill give it an early whirl.
