Re: Proposal Announcement - XML DTDs to XML docs

That's actually what I had in mind when I first started writing this proposal, which explains to some extent why I didn't go into detail explaining behavior. I've heard of a few SGML tools that do this - Marcus Carr noted that OmniMark includes something called DTD2DTD. I think an equivalent tool for making such transformations in XML would be a great start. Of course, we'd have to figure out what that transformation would look like, but that's all part of the fun. >I hope this idea grows. Glad to hear it! I certainly hope it grows, whether or not it has anything to do with this particular proposal.
