   RE: [xml-dev] <!ELEMENT element-name (ANY)> in DTD

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Title: Message
I'm not sure it is a good idea to put parentheses around the ANY content-specifier, so maybe removing them might help in your second case. Plus, if your parser is validating, child-element must be declared somewhere.
And regarding the first problem, I don't think that ANY allows you to put text as element-content.
But I might be wrong...

Subject: [xml-dev] <!ELEMENT element-name (ANY)> in DTD

    <!ELEMENT element-name (ANY)>.
The keyword ANY declares an element with any content. But it is not working so. When i declare the element like this and have XML doc like <element-name> test </element-name>, parser throws Exception saying org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: The content of element type "element-name" must match "(ANY)".
Also i tried to have XML Doc like <element-name>
                                                    <child-element> test </child-element>
This also is not working. I am not clear what the keyword "ANY" means.
