Re: [xml] Remove First Two Header Nodes from Xml Doc [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

A document that has well formed tags is an XML document but it is not a
*valid* XML document.  To be valid it must have a DTD.

So what changes are required in the above mentioned code

Not possible? At the risk of saying something wrong since I've only 
been using libxml a couple months, removing those 2 lines 
would make 
the file not xml, so the question falls outside the scope 
of the API. 
If you really want to do it, you could just write custom C code to 
remove them, but in that case, you should just write custom 
C code to 
create your desired output to begin with.

I'll gladly consider corrections to my assertion.

An xml document without doctype is still an xml document, and 
it's still
possible to remove it with the C API:

xmlDtdPtr dtd = xmlGetIntSubset(doc);
if (dtd != NULL) {

(Stolen from xmllint.c)

The only way I know to remove the xml declaration would be to dump the
root node of the document instead of dumping the document.
