No, grasshopper, the question you must first ask is, how long did it take you to learn XML?
Then when you understand how to create a DTD you can create your EDD. Before you map the EDD you must figure out how your structure can be mimicked by the formatting. For formatting is a visual structuring of the data. Structure then start your EDD. It will be a long few weeks. to learn the ins and outs. Keep it simple and elegant.
