    DTD Stands for Document Type Definition..DTD defines the tags and attributes used in an XML or HTML document. Any elements defined in a DTD can be used in these documents, along with the predefined tags and attributes that are part of each markup language.

    I would have also preferred a more detailed answer, in the member's own words, rather than an uncredited, one or two sentence answer copied and pasted from another source.

    XML is really a markup language to create other markup languages, and the DTD is tool you use to create and describe your language. Once a DTD is created and a document written based on that DTD, the document is then compared to the DTD.
