Exactly what I have been looking for. Two methods that return a boolean
to check that the document is well-formed and to check that the document
is valid against a DTD. But instead of two methods, just one oveloaded

public boolean isValid()		// check that the document is "well formed"

public boolean isValid(String dtd)	// check that the document is "valid"
against the given DTD
