How to store XML DTDs/Schemas on the web

Hi all,

So, I'm trying to understand how people are storing XML DTDs these days. In

a) Are people using DTDs, or moving to Schemas/XML-Data, or whatever that's called?

b) What do we call these anyway?
- vocabularies
- schemas
- naming schemes
- document definitions

c) Is it considered "good policy" to post a description in both DTD & Schema
format? Or if we want broad usage, should we just use DTD?

d) Are there any formal or informal naming conventions for where to store these?

What is best practice? I tried looking at places like, but only got more confused...
