In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=
In[1]:=
Click for copyable input

To use with a pre-initialized parser, pre-initialize the parser according to a DTD at the remote URL and name that pre-initialized parser :

In[2]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[2]=

Use the pre-initialized parser to validate the string on import. "Valid"->True indicates the string was validated successfully:

In[3]:=
Click for copyable input
Out[3]=
