XML is designed to publish documents programmatically, where a developer or a designer writes stylesheets that control the layout and navigation.

A document type definition (DTD) is a set of markup declarations that define a document type for an SGML-family markup language (SGML, XML, HTML).
DTD allows the creation of numerous documents while ensuring that the information contained in them will be comparable. A Document Type Declaration (DOCTYPE) is an instruction that associates a particular SGML or XML document with a specific DTD.
DTD documents are high-level documents, designed to be parsed by user agents.
Ace offers a variety of standard DTD development services. We have extensive experience in working with and modifying popular public DTD’s such as those defined by:
