Re: Auto-generate a DTD from multiple XML documents?

If you know that the documents are all valid to the full TEI DTD then you are in a much strnger position than just trying to infer a DTD from a set of instances. You can, essentially, just use a simple xpath expression (or just perl, probably) to get a list of element and attribute names used in your instances then take the TEI DTD and just delete any references to elements not used in your instances. You may have a few small manual changes to make the resulting grammar deterministic, but basically you are done. Alternatively perhaps you could just get the TEI Pizza chef to bake you a small DTD http://www.tei-c.org/pizza.html David ________________________________________________________________________ The Numerical Algorithms Group Ltd is a company registered in England and Wales with company number 1249803.
