RE: What are schemata

Hmm, this line of thought may be perpetuating what I see as one of the shortcomings of DTDs, namely that the DTD has to describe the whole document, i.e. a class of languages. What about partial validation/constraints? I think it's important that child-of-DTD support compond documents & partial validation. So in the terms above, maybe these things define sets of elements and attributes, rather than whole documents. -Tim xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
