Re: DTD and Illegal Construct

The recent questions from Jim Shain and TAKAHASHI Hideo
on content model (non-)determinism and SGML/XML parsing
represent FAQs going back to high antiquity -- from before
the ink was dry on ISO 8879:SGML.  For a collection of
pertinent references, see:

"SGML/XML Notion of Ambiguity (non-deterministic content models)"

at http://xml.coverpages.org/topics.html#ambiguity

See also the preceding section in this "Topics" document,

"Content Model Simplification, Rewrite Rules, Reducing Grammars"

Best wishes all,
