Re: XML Resources for Document Markup
It depends on the type of document you want to manipulate. DTDs range from the sublime to the ridiculous. Their histories range from weeks to years. Among those of which I am aware, you have Docbook for technical documentation, and TEI and TEI Lite for scholarly work with text. Some more recent DTDs for publishing include the Open Ebook publication structure found at www.openebook.org and the one we are developing for digital talking books, DTBook3, which you can see at www.loc.gov/nls/niso/ Within a few days we will have a draft of a specification for the markup of digital talking books available from the web site of the National Information Standards Organization, www.niso.org Even though we call these documents "digital talking books", we are defining a whole family of documents with varying amounts of text and audio, to be played back in large print, refreshable braille, text-to-speech and/or narrated audio. Stay tuned!
