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 !)
