Subject: RE: [legalxml-comment] Missing DTD?


Hi George et al,

I've located the archives for the Transcript workgroup. They can be
found at the address above and cover the Charter and the Document Model.

Subject: [legalxml-comment] Missing DTD?

Greetings everyone.

I've just subscribed to this listserv, and it's the first one I've been
on since 1993 so please forgive me if my posting is misdirected.  I'm
not trying to clutter anyone's email with stupid questions... :-)

As a developer I've been looking at applying XML to how my software
manipulates deposition transcripts, and after googling LegalXML, well,
here I am.

Apparently there has already been some progress made in this area, but I
can't seem to locate the DTD (or preferably the schema) for the work
that's been accomplished.  I took a couple of hours and tossed together
my own schema for what I would like to see, and after doing an export of
a transcript from RealLegal's E*Transcript 4.0, was pleasantly surprised
that my concept and theirs matched pretty closely.  Further, they seem
to reference your DTD at
which is completely dead.

So first, where do I get the DTD?

Second, to whom do I address proposals for additional (optional)

Third, when is the DTD being scrapped in favor of xml-schema?

Fourth, are any CAT vendors out there actually embracing XML as a
delivery mechanism to the client?

Right now the attorney's seem to be getting ASCII floppies to load into
DepositionDirector, or Summation iBlaze, or whatever.  I think if the
reporters could export XML transcripts for delivery to the attorney's
(directly from their CAT software), and that XML was standardized, then
the task of moving data from CAT software to linked digital video, to
discovery software, to trial presentation software could be greatly
simplified. (read: faster, cheaper, easier).

Any inputs are appreciated.  If I've sent this to the wrong folks,
please just tell me where to go... (err, so to speak.)

:-) Geo...
