Subject Re: Problem with CVS of Cocoon-Documentation & an Authoring Question
Date Tue, 25 Nov 2003 00:06:20 GMT
I had further discussion with Thomas and we found out, that the reason 
is the DTD handling of IE. If you view the XML (or HTML) documents in 
render mode, IE searches for the linked DTD. These links point to the 
old relative locations of the files, exactly where they were before we 
switched to XML catalogues. At this point when browsing the CVS by web 
there is no DTD, but the HTML CVS page for this DTD:

The XML page:

If you use the rendering view:*checkout*/cocoon-2.1/src/documentation/xdocs/faq/book.xml?rev=1.1

or the text/plain view (and here behaves IE wrongly):*checkout*/cocoon-2.1/src/documentation/xdocs/faq/book.xml?rev=1.1&content-type=text/plain

IE resolves the link "../dtd/book-cocoon-v10.dtd" pointing to*checkout*/cocoon-2.1/src/documentation/xdocs/dtd/book-cocoon-v10.dtd

(which is automatically redirected to

And there you don't find the DTD, but the Attic CVS description of the 
DTD, which is a HTML page, which has a reference to another DTD.

In conclusion: It's an issue we simply can not fix besides by removing 
all links except 'view'. But I guess we won't do this as there is still 
the possibility to view the page with IE. 2 of 3 links should at least 
work, 1 does work.
