Can someone help with a DTD notation question, please?
I'm looking at a DTD furnished by an outside source. In the DTD, most "optional repeating" elements are defined with an asterisk, for example, <!ELEMENT Test1 (ItemA, ItemB?, ItemC*)>. But a few are defined with additional parentheses, for example, <!ELEMENT Test2 (ItemA, ItemB?, (ItemC)*)>.
What's the difference between "ItemC*" and "(ItemC)*"?
Thanks for any insight into this (subtlety | confusion) you can give.
