i'm developing an application and use XML files to define a custom fileformat.
now of course the XML has to have a certain structure or else the app will crash.

how can i define something like a doctype which the user can use to validate the XML?

What you'd probably want to do is to create a DTD for the XML, a DTD is basically the rules used to validate the XML against.

Take a look here http://www.xmlfiles.com/dtd/ to see if you can make heads or tails of it, it's not crystal clear and dead simple if you have a lot of rules, that's for sure
