Uh, "nonstandard" is not the correct adjective. "Non-W3C-recommended" is much more correct. In fact, there has been an internationally standard model for the API to DTDs for over 3 years: the SGML Property Set, found in ISO/IEC 10744:1997 ("HyTime") and in ISO/IEC 10179:1996 ("DSSSL"). An API based on this internationally standard model is available in the "MarkMinder" SGML engine, a plug-in module of the "GroveMinder" product (see http://www.techno.com/gminder3.htm). A demonstration of GroveMinder is now available to prospective licensees. It includes a document set that includes XML, HyTime, SGML, Word and Excel resources, it demonstrates extended hyperlinking using HyTime varlink (aka XML XLink) and transclusions. It provides a GroveMinder-based http server in Python source form. I demonstrated it during my talk at XTech 99. As for values of default attributes, the SGML Property Set allows the API to report not only to report the defaulted value, but also the fact that it was defaulted. Indeed, one can tell exactly what was explicitly in the document, and what was supplied at parse time. I hope and believe that the "XML Infoset" committee will come up with an information set that will be equally revealing in this respect. -Steve -- Steven R.
