<shortdesc>Validating a DTD file lets you verify that it is well formed and
does not contain any errors.</shortdesc>

but they will also work in many other perspectives.&nbsp;</p><p>To validate
a DTD, right-click the DTD in the Navigator view and click <menucascade><uicontrol>Validate
DTD File</uicontrol></menucascade>. A dialog opens, indicating if the DTD
file was successfully validated or not. If the file is invalid, any errors
will appear in the Problems view. &nbsp;</p></context>
