   Re: [xml-dev] Document oriented experience reports anyone?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I tried that once and XMetal would not let me run macros after I added to
doctype info to the XML document.  But now that I think about, I think that
the problem has to do with an unrelated XMetal bug.  I will have to try it
after lunch and see if it works this time.  If not, I guess I should report
it as a bug.

I already sent my comments off to the W3C.

Strictly speaking, one can use DTDs (to declare entities) in
conjunction with XSD to define everything else.  After all, DTD
operates on XML syntax and XSD is defined on the Infoset.  I suspect
that there are gotchas that make this difficult ... does anyone know
what they might be?
