I found this in /doc/samples/WebTest.dtd

Is this what you are looking for?

Okay.. why don't we do this.  Here is the dtd we use for our functional 
tests.  It is a pretty good start to a standardized dtd for webtest.  
Someone please make this a part of Canoo.. I believe it has been requested 
for quite some time. You should be able to use any xml editor that supports 
auto completion based upon a dtd.. actually if someone were to comment these 
elements some editors even display them as well.  We use WSAD and this dtd 
works like a champ.

Hi folks/volks:

Does anyone recommend a fine xml editor for editing webtests? The webtest
documentation strongly recommends an intelligent editor.

I'm using intellij's idea and emacs. The problem is when editing individual
teststeps (i.e. later included as entities), since the file doesn't have a
dtd and isn't valid xml, the 'auto complete' features of the editor don't

any recommendations?  any emacs modes people like for webtest xml editing?

e.g. editing a file that only has this in it:

<invoke  stepid="Contact Us "
   url="/feedback/contactus.jsp" />

  <verifytitle stepid="Contact Us"
     regex="true" />

    stepid="Set Contact Us Input"
    value="Great Site!!! (Contacted via Automatic Testing)" />

  <clickbutton stepid="Click Contact us"
      name="submit"  />

  <verifytitle stepid="Contact Us Verify Title after contacting"
     regex="true" />
