   Extend/modify DocBook Schema?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


I used a modified version of DocBook for an API documentation effort,
adding programmer, maintainer, and packagename to methodsynopsis. 
I was working from the 4.2 DocBook DTD (docbookx.dtd,v 1.13 2002/07/17)
and I followed the examples in the online documentation. [1]

Now I'd like to prepare to try this with the Office 11 Beta (whenever it 
arrives), and need to implement my customization layer in WXS. I had 
changed the order of elements in methodsynopsis by putting 
packagename right before methodname, and by adding a language
attribute.  (I also added some names to the end of the content model, but
I don't think they're a big problem.) I've appended a snippet of the XML. 

I'm very new to WXS, and based on the reading I've done so far, I don't 
think I can support the existing API XML documents with my custom DTD 
and with a customized Schema, because I don't see how I can change 
the order of elements in methodsynopsis to insert my packagename.

Is there a way to customize the DocBook Schema through a customization
layer as I did for the DTD? Or should I change the XML to match a content 
model that I can support  using import? Am I overlooking namespace issues 
that can make this easier (or more difficult)?
