I'm not arguing against the notation method, though to my limited eyes it seems to need a revised draft? The suggestion of regular expressions was simply that *if* we got one for TEI pointers (as has been urged) we can use the same one for this. But if notations are harder that RE's then you will probably have to look to someone else to implement it. BTW - I am surprised that after nearly 3 months of this list there aren't more people coming up with tools. A lot of the stuff must already exist... > > -- Peter Murray-Rust, domestic net connection Virtual School of Molecular Sciences http://www.vsms.nottingham.ac.uk/ xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers Archived as: http://www.lists.ic.ac.uk/hypermail/xml-dev/ To unsubscribe, send to majordomo@i... the following message; unsubscribe xml-dev List coordinator, Henry Rzepa (rzepa@i...)
