   RE: [xml-dev] (newbie) common attribute through XML document

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Yes.  You can define it as an entity:

Example - 
<!ENTITY % yesorno        "(0|1)"

Then your attribute could be something like:

Example - 
<!ATTLIST myTag myAttribute %yesorno; "0" >

Hope this helps.

Subject: [xml-dev] (newbie) common attribute through XML document

Quick question--within a DTD, is there a way to define
an attribute once, that may be available for any tag
throughout the XML document?  (i.e., I have an
arbitrary XML document of several tags--I want the
same attribute to be available for each of them.)

Something like
<!ATTLIST ANY attributeName .... >
