Subject: DOCBOOK: Re: Which Variant of DocBook (SGML or XML)?

With the XML version you're not able to detect "errors" like <para><footnote> <para> <footnote><para></para></footnote> </para> </footnote> </para> XML lacks inclusion/exlusion exceptions. Once available, a SCHEME based validation process might help. Maybe, a DTD based validation isn't strong enough for your purposes; in this case you'll have to wait for a schema implementation.

I'm not aware of an XSLT processor which requires an XML schema. -- work : firstname.lastname@example.org | ------ ,__o : http://www.suse.de/~ke/ | ------ _-\_<, home : email@example.com | ------ (*)/'(*)
