   RE: [xml-dev] how to make the order of elements in the DTD null n void

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Does this work for you?

<!ELEMENT CompanyProfile ( Profile? | Promotion?)>

each element is optional, will occur at most once, and any order is allowed.

Perhaps I missed some part of what you see as the problem??

Subject: [xml-dev] how to make the order of elements in the DTD null n


I have defined a DTD with a set of xml's. These xml's have the elements
defined in more that one order,
<!---------- a.xml------------>

Another xml file has the order changed

The DTD for these files contains
<!ELEMENT CompanyProfile ( Profile?, Promotion?)>

 The problem im facing is that when i validate the xmls with the
corresponding DTD, it throws an error in b.xml, which relates to the
order of the elements Profile and Promotion.

Im using xmllint to validate the xml :

$xmllint --noout --valid a.xml

My questions is:
How can i override the order of elements (the elements are optional in
nature as well) not to be checked with the corresponding DTD?
Ive used a XML schema to validate the xmls but doesnt work, since i cant
have an ordered list ("all") have maxOccurs=unbounded

Thanks for you help in advance
