Subject: Re: RFE #1998852: Provide a mechanism to group parameters.
/ Dave Pawson <email@example.com> was heard to say: | Am I right in thinking that so far, we've been OK with 'backwards' | translation to both DTD and xsd? Yes. | I'm a little more than 50% supportive of retaining that | ability, sensing that people happily quote that docbook works | with XSD. | | I shan't shout if you go with this solution, just a little | concerned that some users (those locked into W3C/MS worlds) who | are xsd bound might hurt if this breaks that assumption? | | "perhaps we need to build a better XSD in any event" | Does that mean something other than Jing to go from .rng to .xsd? I think you mean Trang, and it fails totally on the DocBook schemas. I have a fairly complex set of stylesheets that do a bunch of work, including some special cases, to produce a DTD. I produce the XSD from the DTD. I'm starting to think that this whole mechanical translation idea is too hard. But maybe I'll do better in time to write a paper for Balisage 2009 :-) OTOH, if anyone's got a grad student with an interest in schema modeling, constraints, and graph manipulation, I have a good project in mind ... :-) Be seeing you, norm -- Norman Walsh <firstname.lastname@example.org> | Well-being is attained by little http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/ | and little, and nevertheless it is Chair, DocBook Technical Committee | no little thing itself.--Zen of | Citium
