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

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It means you can use any element that has been defined in the DTD, not just
any element.

    <!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
This also is not working. I am not clear what the keyword "ANY" means.
