    My experience in developing programs using XML is that there is quite a bit
    of coding necessary to satisfy a particular DTD. I believe that IBM has a
    set of Java beans that will take a DTD and write Java classes to handle all
    the elements. That's been the key, in my experience: there needs to be code
    to handle specific elements of a DTD. I do not yet know what will be the
    case for XML schemas. I suspect that the case is a bit simpler with RDF,
    since you really only have a couple of generic elements, and resources --
    perhaps one size fits all.
