I too was puzzled at the lack of this essential tool, so I corrected
the one posted earlier by david, as it contained rather a lot of quite
serious errors (I think it was machine-generated).
The updated version is at http://www.silmaril.ie/software/rss2.dtd
Please download this for use: it's a low-bandwidth server and we can't
support a gazillion people referencing it directly.
If it turns out to be useful I am happy to maintain it as RSS changes,
provided someone can notify me when that occurs. I'm not reading this
list's mail: if you need to contact me, my address is in the header
of the DTD.
For writing RSS 2.0 files, you should refer to the documentation for
the content of some elements because they must contain data which DTD
syntax was not designed to validate. A Schema is the correct tool to
use for character data validation: a DTD can only be used for editor
guidance and validation of element structure and attribute types (and
a few other things not used in RSS2).
Unfortunately the structure and naming of RSS element types was
inherited from the original efforts by Netscape, which we seem to be
stuck with. I suspect if it was designed again from scratch we would
be much more compact and much simpler, but that's life.
