Subject: meeting summary: LwDITA SC on LwDITA DTDs

Meeting summary: LwDITA DTDs

The Lightweight DITA subcommittee met on August 2, 2017 to discuss issues relating to LwDITA DTDs (and Schema and RNG).

This is not a formal meeting minutes, but a summary of issues discussed and recommendations made.

Issues Discussed:
  • DTD internal documentation — Discussed improvements to guiding comments and examples to support users who wish to add filtering attributes to DTD.
  • Attribute/element groups — Discussed syntax and guiding comments for configuring attribute groups in the LwDITA DTDs.
  • DTD Modularity and Delivery — Discussed whether/how the LwDITA DTDs should be modularized and how they should support configuration.
Recommendation to the DITA TC:
  • LwDITA should deliver a single topic and a single map DTD.
  • Domains (highlighting and multimedia) should be integrated into these monolithic DTDs.
  • Users who wish to configure LwDITA would modify those DTDs directly.
  • The SC should provide best practices for configuration … for example, if you modify the LwDITA DTD, you should rename the DTD file and give it a new public identifier.
  • Instructions for configuration can be deferred to the specification. (Not necessary for the committee note).
  • The TC should deliver a package w/DTD, RNG, and W3C Schema for LwDITA.
