My question has to do with DTD syntax . I'm hoping somebody will be able to
help me out. i have defined an element as follows:
<!ELEMENT index (para*,num_list*,image*)>
The above code allows me to define child elements (para,num_list,image)
within the element "index" but only in the order in which they appear in the
DTD syntax. What should i do if i need to alter the order in some parts of
my document e.g. i add a <num_list> after an <image> at a certain place in
my document instead of <para>. I guess this is an elementary thing but i'm
only 2 months old in the XML world and I have to tell you that most of my
questions will be very basic!!
Thanks a lot.
