PyCharm 2020.2 Help

Generating DTD

A Data Type Definition (DTD) is required for running structure validation checks on a web content file. PyCharm can scan any XML file for the existing elements and attributes and generate a DTD for it.

Generate a DTD for an XML file

  1. Open the file in the editor.

  2. From the main menu, select Tools | XML Actions | Generate DTD From XML File. PyCharm inserts the resulting DTD as a section above the first line of the file.
