Subject: DocBook/XML catalog question


a quick question since I help maintain DocBook/XML for pkgsrc.org.

DocBook/XML 4.1.2 - 4.4 are all backwards compatible, does this mean that I
can just add this to catalog.xml:

<public publicId="-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.3//EN"
<public publicId="-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.2//EN"
<public publicId="-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.1.2//EN"

This is what some people are suggesting.  I am a bit hesitant to do this,
due to the fact that if you explicitely want to validate against 4.1.2 or
4.2 you will have a bit wider specification if you use 4.4's DTD.

Or wouldn't it matter that much?

Any insight welcome...

To regard the fundamental as the essence, to regard things as coarse, to
regard accumulation as deficiency, and to dwell quietly alone with the
spiritual and the intelligent -- herein lie the techniques of Tao of
the ancients.
