Yes, and it may be contagious. :-) > Or is this a confused issue? Potentially, that's what's sparking discussion. To clarify (for me at least) there are now SGML DTDs and XML DTDs. For those of us still using SGML, the differentiation is significant as we may have requirements for the superset of declarations or attribute declared values. There will soon be some form of XML schema - the beast we're trying to name. I agree with those who said we should steer away from any names that involve 'DTD'. -- Regards Marcus Carr email: mrc@a... _______________________________________________________________ Allette Systems (Australia) email: info@a...
