   DTD Design

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

We are in the early stages of moving our existing information into XML and I
am starting to look at the DTD and was after some advice.

It was initially proposed that we use the format SubSection(n), however this
limits the number of  sub-sections the document can have. I proposed the use
of a generic section element which will remove this. Which approach is
better? What are there strengths/weaknesses? DOCBook which uses nested
section elements states 'Use of deeply nested Sections may cause problems in
some processing systems.' ? 

The documents will be displayed via a browser using XSLT to convert the XML
to HTML.

Thanks in advance
