Subject: RE: [docbook] Multi-file document.

This topic was touched upon recently on docbook-apps (the list dedicated to tools-related issues--follow up there please):

Out of curiosity as to whether jEdit passes Jeff's 'good XML editor' test, I poked around at the jEdit cvs repository and notice a comment like this in the docbook source files for the jEdit documentation:

<!-- jEdit buffer-local properties: -->
<!-- :indentSize=1:noTabs=true: -->
<!-- :xml.root=users-guide.xml: --> 


Looks like it works similar to the way emacs+psgml does and uses a comment to tell the editor where to find the root doc/doctype.

	I am willing to use DocBook to write my thesis. For the
moment, I have separated test chapters into different files, using
system entities.

<!DOCTYPE book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.2//EN"
<!ENTITY intro SYSTEM "intro.fr.xml">
<!ENTITY results SYSTEM "results.en.xml">
<!ENTITY matmed SYSTEM "matmed.fr.xml">
<!ENTITY glossaire SYSTEM "glossaire.fr.xml">
<!ENTITY perspectives SYSTEM "perspectives.fr.xml">

	There is a problem with this approach : since the chapters
can't have a DTD, they are difficult (well..., less easy ;) to edit
with software like jEdit.

	Do you think I'd better merge them back, or is there a DocBook
workaround to fix this?

Have a nice weekend,
