Looking for very simple document DTD

I would like to write simple, yet well structured documents with a
really simple XML DTD (or schema). Either Docbook or SDocbook are
overkill for this simple case.

XHTML is simpler, but unstructured (no nested sections). And is not
really very simple.

Before trying to setup a stripped-down document format by myself, I
would like to know if there are simple XML document structure proposals
ready to be used (I dislike to reinvent the wheel). A Google search has
found nothing (only a lot of references to SDF, a non-XML Perl
documentation toolkit).

Does anybody knows some simple, well structured document schemas?

Thanks,

Henry,

Please excuse my butting in here, but I found your Edinburgh Univ web page
here:
http://www.hcrc.ed.ac.uk/~ht/
and the XED info here:
http://www.cogsci.ed.ac.uk/~ht/xed.html

The URL above didn't work at all.

www.{ltg,cogsci ,hcrc}.ed.ac.uk are all the same machine, but there
seems to be a DNS problem with ltg today.

Hi, Hopefully this is not too much offtopic. I'm working on a FAQ. I want to make two versions of it, plain text and HTML. I'm looking for a tool that will make a plain text doc out of the HTML doc. The HTML version doesn't have anything fancy, just internal links. So the tool must be able to delete internal links and anchors from the HTML version, but leave external links in simplified form. That is, the HTML version would say <a...
