Re: [xml-dev] XML -> SGML serialization. Any ideas ?

Thanks Tony, for this !

I'm able to produce a XML file, with all exotic-characters escaped, with a reference to a DTD, that's perfect.

Now, I have to try to see if it's valid as a SGML file...

Thanks again,

I hope that you don't have any empty elements.

contains characters that are not ASCII. So I have to translate them to use entities (I think SGML has a set of declared entities for characters with accents, as é, @agrave;, and so on).

I'd like the file could be read by XML parsers too, and I'm looking for a method to produce an XML that is also SGML. I think to use XSL with characters map, but how could I define the embeded DTD, with all entities defined ?
Use the "XML Entity Definitions for Characters":

It also has an XSLT2 stylesheet for mapping from Unicode characters to
entity references.
