Thanks. I was actually using 
  xmllint --valid --dtdvalid mydtd.dtd mydoc.xml

So is --dtdvalid an alternative to --valid rather than a way of using
--valid?

  and alternative, as DTD validation as defined in the XML-1.0 spec
is --valid i.e. validating as parsing based on DOCTYPE contained in
the document, and --dtdvalid is just a different kind of validation
closely related, but certainly different, and in subtle case you may
see different results (but in general it will be the same !)
