Subject Re: mixed content in DTDs - the workaround.
Date Tue, 24 Jul 2001 02:09:15 GMT
hello everybody,
well, i gotta thank all of you for the help first of all.

Now, let me tel tell you what i did in the end...
      As <dpenton> suggested, i changed the order of the #PCDATA and the sub-point child.
      But that resulted in another error. 
      
      Then i had to go with a workaround... by adding another element:
         
            <!ELEMENT point (description)>      
                <!ELEMENT description (sub-point*)>
                    <!ELEMENT sub-point (#PCDATA)>

Kazi.

PS. I am feeling now maybe that i didnt explain my intentions clearly in my mail...  i was
trying to create xml for writing a list of notes where any certain point in the list could
having nested points or 'sub-points' as i call them.

  Right.  I seem to have tried to answer too late at night!  The asterisk goes where you have
it for mixed content.

    I guess this is the correct format

    <!ELEMENT point (#PCDATA | sub-point )*>
