public enum DtdProcessing

Ignore 1

Causes the DOCTYPE element to be ignored. No DTD processing occurs, and the DTD/DOCTYPE is lost on output.

Parse 2

Used for parsing DTDs.

Prohibit 0

Specifies that when a DTD is encountered, an XmlException is thrown with a message that states that DTDs are prohibited. This is the default behavior.


This enumeration is set on the XmlReaderSettings.DtdProcessing property or the XmlTextReader.DtdProcessing property.
