RE: [xml-dev] Validation - a history.

Which to be fair, if one understood the other parts of the SGML standards
trinity, HyTime and DSSSL, without the DTD the relationships started to fall
apart and technical features began to go away.   As we watch the committees
who have struggled mightily to put some of them back adding to the
disingenouous 27 pages ever since, one understands why Dr. Goldfarb was
reluctant to let go of the preexisting work.

BTW, delimiters etc, are in the Declaration, not the DTD as Jon says.  Those
were always capable of being decoupled.

There is some great stuff on the transition of DTDs to optional status
(and Charles G's fight against it) in Jon Bosak's closing keynote for XML
2006: http://2006.xmlconference.org/proceedings/162/presentation.html
