Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: external entities cannot be valid?
Norm is right; this was the case with SGML. You're just encountering it for the first time, Bob. What I do is essentially your choice C, so I wind up with both <?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE chapter SYSTEM "db3xml10.dtd" [ ... <!ENTITY ch9tfarn SYSTEM "ch9tfarn.xml"> ... ]> <chapter id="ch9.htm"> <title role="Chapter Nine">The Atabakīyah Architect</title> &ch9tfarn; ... </chapter> and a similar wrapper file for the whole book. In this case the entities are sections. As I don't use structured editing tools I've never encountered the problems you're finding with them, though. regards, Terry
