   RCS and the $ character 36.

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I'm having fun with SGML.

Looking at Ricks piece on xml.com,

I tried it with twiki syntax.

This includes a display list

for which the wiki syntax is


where ___ is 3 spaces.

So, I want to add a

                   HCRO "&#38;#x"  --entity intro --

                   SHORTREF NONE

(last line is where I'm falling over)

Now I've tried all the combinations I can think of,
but that $ symbol isn't accepted by nsgmls

I can have (nearly) any other common or garden character,
sequence of characters, and most of the
RCS delimiters,
but there's something fishy about the dollar character.

I don't have any reference books,
google failed me, just coughed with all the dust on such a search,

can anyone here tell me how it should work, or why it doesn't please?

The shortrefs in the DTD I'm just about coming to terms with.

TIA, DaveP
