simple guy rig
Hi Bob,

Two suggestions :
1. Use favourite SAX, rig handler methods to trap & replace STUFF, otherwise
echo output. If the third party doesn't like the whitespace you'd be advised
to find other partners.
2. Make this guy an offer he can't refuse : sean@d...

<- Subject: A simple guy with a simple problem
<- Hello, my name is Bob and I'm a programmer.
<- I work for a B2B company. My task today is to process
<- incoming XML documents that are known to be valid against the foo
<- DTD and change all occurences of the word "STUFF" to "stuff".
<- I need to leave the documents otherwise unchanged in all material
<- respects as they are going on to a third company in a B2B chain.
<- Here is the DTD:
<-          <!ELEMENT foo (lit)*>
<-          <!ELEMENT lit (#PCDATA)>
<-          <!ATTLIST lit text CDATA "STUFF">
<- Here is a sample document:
<-          <?foo bar?>
<-          <!DOCTYPE foo SYSTEM "foo.dtd" [
<-          <!ENTITY bar "this is some STUFF">
<-          ]>
<-          <foo>
<-          <lit text="hello">
<-          <![CDATA[This is literal
<-          STUFF]]>
<-          </lit>
<-          <lit>
<-          &bar;
<-          </lit>
<-          </foo>
<- How should I proceed to do my job?
