Re: DTD editor
yes - I agree. There isn't a DTD editor out yet that is able to do what I'm able to do by just looking at the DTD and following the real simple rules. And XMetal appears, from what I've seen so far, to be a very stable tool for creating documents - I've used it and it's caught document errors that other tools haven't. ---- you wrote: > > The best tool I have found for creating DTDs are an ASCII > editor and a parser. > > Near and Far from Microstar is a great tool for viewing a DTD and a > displaying the hierarchical model. > > Since we are talking about Editors there are several XML > editors available on the market with a long history of > editing structured information. > > SoftQuad will be releasing XMetaL very soon.
