Re: Proposal Announcement - XML DTDs to XML docs

It will always be the case that more people are interested in the data in XML documents than in the DTDs. Hence, the number of tools available for exploring the data and the standards relating to these tools (e.g. SAX and DOM) will always be greater than those relating to DTDs. Simon's proposal, assuming it can be realized, erases this difference, which is exceedingly useful to those of us who want to explore DTDs. While I think something like XML-Data is needed in the long run for data type description and so on, I agree with Simon that a less ambitious subset is very useful in the short run. -- Ron Bourret xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
