attribute default dtd sax

* Amit Rekhi
|     	       The A.dtd contains :-
| 	       .......
|                         ATTR-1  NUMBER #FIXED "0">
|    	       .........
| In my A.html file I want to access <TEMP>'s default attribute ATTR-1
| (defined in A.dtd) after I parse the A.xml file into a tree using
| MSXML java parser.
| How would I do that??? 	     

A conforming XML parser that reads the DTD will behave as if the
ATTR-1 attribute had been present on every TEMP element, so you don't
need access to the DTD or any other kind of magic.

If MSXML doesn't do this I suggest you use a parser that does. You can
find a list of parsers at


(Also note that XML doesn't have a "NUMBER" attribute type. You'll
have to use CDATA.)

and much more neat / is to see that he is living somewhere in the middle /
of the twentieth century, and leave him there."     -- Edwin Brock
