I use a utility written in Perl by Earl Hood to do this type of analysis
on DTDs.  Since the utility pre-XML it supports both SGML and XML DTD's. 
The utility is called 'dtd2html'.  It is really nice utility because it
shows you the content model as well as the parents and children of the
element.  Pretty handy!

I think you should be able to find it by doing a Google search but if not,
let me know.
