I have an XML file and its DTD file. What module can I use to parse the XML and validate it against the DTD?

There is a pure XSL(T) answer: the Schematron. It's an XSLT stylesheet; you run it on the DTD, and this produces a second stylesheet, which is a validator for the DTD. You run that on your XML to validate it.
