Re: Required attribue with a default enumerated attribute valu
In article <COL119-W34A7452319DE17FB85BC62F1A40@p...> you write: >Is it possible to make a required attribue with a default enumerated >attribute value. That doesn't make sense. How can it be required and have a default? >At the moment I have something like this in my DTD file: > >< !ATTLIST element-name attribute-name (en1|en2|en3) "en3"> > >This means that this is valid when I dont't want it to be: > >< element-name> < element-name /> Why not? It's equivalent to <element-name attribute-name="en3"/>. If you want the user to have to specify the attribute, mark it required: <!ATTLIST element-name attribute-name (en1|en2|en3) #REQUIRED> >Is it possible then to force the attribute-name to be present so in an XML >Editor when the element-name is created it automatically creates this: > >< element-name attribute-name="en3"> < element-name /> It seems you want to have the attribute be required, but have an editor default to a particular value. XML doesn't have any way to specify that kind of interaction with editors. By "default value", XML means one that's used when the user doesn't specify one, not one that is inserted by an editor. -- Richard -- Please remember to mention me / in tapes you leave behind.
