Subject [FYI] gadget dumps of the gump metadata
Date Mon, 04 Oct 2004 04:27:19 GMT
part of my day job is to deal with tons crappy XML, described by some 
even crappier XMLSchema/DTD (most often not in synch!) and try to make 
sense of it enough to transform it into RDF.

Since the above pattern can be applied to basically any XML dataset that 
grew overtime, it applies very well to gump too :-)

So, here are the gadget dumps of the gump metadata (gadget is an "xml 
inspector" tool that I wrote, for more info see

I'm trying to get the DTDs up to date, but this might help others 
figuring out what gump deals with.

NOTE: I definately inclined in transforming everything into RDF and work 
from there... RDF is sooo much nicer (and easy to use if we use N3 
instead of that stupid RDF/XML syntax) than this crappy XML markup we have.

Anyway, enjoy.
