   (newbie) DTD question

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


I thought this type of XML document (with two types of
"name"s) was acceptable:


Creating a DTD for this appears to be failing on the
"name" field.

I define it once for people as:
<!ELEMENT name (firstname, lastname)>

and later for pets as

But evidently I can only define "name" once, even
though "name" is in different contexts ("person",
"pet").  Can I scope "names" within the DTD, sort of
like this following:  (if so, what's the syntax?)

<!ELEMENT person.name ....
<!ELEMENT pet.name ....
