According to Eliot >K., some variant of SGML allows notations to be associated with attributes. In TC2 to ISO 8879 (the Web SGML Adaptations, see <http://www.ornl.gov/sgml/wg8/document/1955.htm>) we added a new attribute value type, "DATA", that lets you associate a notation name with an attribute in order to define the rules that govern the interpretation of the attribute value. The syntax is: <!ATTLIST foo OrderTime DATA Iso8601_DateTime #REQUIRED > Where "Iso8601_DateTime" is the name of a declaration notation. For element content, using NOTATION attribute is sufficient (and part of the existing SGML and XML specifications: <!ATTLIST OrderTime notation NOTATION (Iso8601_DateTime) Iso8601_DateTime > However, I agree that being able to say this on the element type declaration directly would be convenient. We didn't consider this for the TC because it would be too much of a change to the existing syntax. Cheers, E. -- <Address HyTime=bibloc> W.
