FW: XSD: Proposed Goals

I think we should avoid getting into complex discussions of other possibilities at this stage. Note that if we get a representation, then it may very well act as a catalyst to add 'DTD' information to SAX - we shall have agreed what the most important aspects are and we shall have kept them simple :-) P. BTW. I see a DTD as having a tree structure because I do not treat the element in the contentSpec as equivalent to the element declaration. IOW with: <!ELEMENT A (B, C)> <!ELEMENT B (#PCDATA)> <!ELEMENT C (#PCDATA)> I see A's tree ending with the references to B and C. If we need to find out what they are we link to B and C rather than including them in the tree. In that way we don't recurse. xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
