Subject: RE: Minutes for RELAX NG TC 2001-06-07


Some folks use PEs extensively to wrap or partition a DTD into discrete
parts to create a sort of modularity. For example, the Commerce One cum xCBL
folks use a main DTD (e.g., xcbl30.dtd) that is declared as <!DOCTYPE Order
SYSTEM 'xcbl30.dtd'>. This DTD contains a bunch of PEs and PE references
that pull in other DTDs (the files are all installed in a single directory),
each containing a discrete set of declarations for an element (atts, etc.).

Each of these PEs could be considered a wrapper. A div element might be a
slick optional way to represent these wrappers in RELAX NG, that is, to
group declarations together in a discrete way. To see what xCBL does, you
can go to http://www.xcbl.org and download their latest package.

That's my take. Norm et al. may have a better answer. %^}

Sorry for my ignorance, but would someone explain me what "parameter
entity wrapper" is?

I tried google but couldn't find any explanation...
