However, the actual element instance is both tags and the element's content nested between the tags.(defun file-callback (uri-object token &optional public) ;; the uri-object is an ACL URI object created from ;; the XML input.In this example, this function ;; assumes that all uri's will be file specifications.A document type definition (DTD) is a set of markup declarations that define a document type for an SGML-family markup language (SGML, XML, HTML).A Document Type Definition (DTD) defines the legal building blocks of an XML document.
