XML Files with Embedded DTD Statements

This section provides a tutorial example on how to include DTD statements inside XML files. Embedded DTD statements should appear after the 'xml' process instruction and before the root element.

The easiest way to associate a document type to an XML file is to include all DTD statements that define the document type inside the XML file.

Here is my "Hello world!" XML file with DTD statements embedded internally, hello_int_dtd.xml:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE p [
 <!ELEMENT p ANY>
]>
<p>Hello world!</p>
