Several people have asked me about my paper on Forest Automata.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find time to compile a decent
bibliography, nor add the code examples I hoped to, but I'm going to
release it anyhow. There is a partial(?) bibliography on Robin Cover's
SGML/XML page.

My paper (sans biblio) can be found at:


Forest Automata theory is a formalism for describing SGML/XML validation.
The formalism makes clear some obvious extensions to SGML/XML
validationand can be used as a source of ideas and answers relating to DTD
parameterization, "data types" (lexical data types),
validation-in-context, query languages etc.

Hopefully I will find time or funding to expand this paper eventually,
because there are many interesting highways and biways that it hints at
but does not explore.
