Re: [xml-dev] including another xml file (without a DTD)

Thanks for this. 

Using XInclude worked fine.  I am writing an application for eXist, and I couldn't upload files that required external entities to the db.

I have a big XML file I would like to split up into smaller XML files.  I know that this can be done using an entity inside a DTD:

<!DOCTYPE novel SYSTEM "foo.dtd" [

But, I am using Schemas.  Is there still a way for me to do this?


Yes, there is still a way to do it: use DTDs. There's no problem using a schema for validation and a DTD for entity expansion.

Alternatively, use XInclude, which gives you far more control, for example it allows you to do transformations on the XML without the "entities" being expanded.
