Subject:Create DTD schema from multiple XML files Author:Adrie Lute Date:05 Aug 2005 09:41 AM
I have been evaluating Stylus Studio Pro for a couple of weeks.
My main use will be DTD creation and stylesheet development for existing XML files we get from clients for translation. Clients never seem to understand what a DTD file is; they just have these XML files that need translation. To check whether the structure of an XML file has been damaged by translation, it is important to have a DTD. So, what I do is, I create a DTD from the XML file at hand, to validate the file after translation. However, a client normally doesn't send one XML file for translation, but, say, 20 or 30. And maybe not in one batch, but in, say, 5 or 10 batches. Now, it would be so handy for me to have this DTD, created from the first file, and to tell Stylus Studio: 'now update the DTD file so it doesn't just comply with the first file, but also with the second. And third. And so on.'. You see my point? Something like creating a DTD file from a bunch of files (with the same root element, of course), or updating an existing DTD with additional XML files.

you could use the copy of Trang that ships with Stylus to build a single
DTD from a bunch of XML files. Try dropping the attached file into the
folder <Stylus Dir>bin\Custom Document Wizards; then start Stylus Studio, do a File | Document Wizards and select the new icon "Multiple XML to DTD".
You will be prompted with a dialog accepting from 1 to 20 XML files (you can change this later, if you like), and after you press Ok the DTD will be created.
