I'm not an expert, but I believe that you have the choice of either
including the DTD as part of the XML document or keeping is separate. If
it is  included, the XML document is truly "self describing"; if not, not.
However, if the person you're communicating with already has the DTD
information, you don't need to include it, and that is sometimes easier.
Clearly, if  you're not sure, you would include it.
