[New-bugs-announce] [issue16798] DTD not checked

New submission from Javier Domingo:


I am trying to find any tip on how to use minidom or etree xml implementations to check the xml syntax.

I just found that the only way to check xml syntax throught dtds is using lxml.

Would it be possible to implement this in the minidom or ElementTree default lib?

I have seen bug http://bugs.python.org/issue2124 that speaks about the dtds fetch, but didn't see any place where it speaks about them being checked.
