Ive got started form the website u suggested,:)
I have another question for you, can you use your own DTD with XHTML as well as the one u have to use?

Not as such; but you could write your own markup language - perhaps like xhtml but with variants you like - using xml and dtd.
However, as I understand it, for complex applications DTD is not particularly flexible. Have a look at Schema - I know nothing about it personally, but I understand it is significantly more powerful and flexible.

One of the strongest features of xml Schema is that you can define the data types of your elements - not possible with DTD where everything is PCDATA.

To clarify though - is writing a markup language actually what you want to do, or are you primarily concerned with how to transform XML into XHTML for use on the web? If that's the case, then you should look as XSL.
