View Full Version : Embedding a couple XHTML dtd modulars in my DTD

12-05-2002, 12:44 AM
I've read through the WC3's modular implentation of xhtml dtds and I'm still a bit in the dark. What I want to do is allow my defined para element to accept elements from the xhtml text dtd & the xhtml hypertext dtd. Can anyone recommend any faqs or docs on the web that discuss this type of implentation explicity?

I've figured this out....this was terriably simple...no need to use the xhtml mods....simply use the xhtml-basic.dtd:


Here's an example:

I'ved included the xhtml 'p' element as a child of my defined 'para' element:

<!-- define para -->
<!ELEMENT para (p)*>
<!ELEMENT xhtml-text (p)*>

<!-- pull in w3c xhtml dtd-->
<!ENTITY % xhtml.mod
SYSTEM "xhtml.mod" >

and in the xhtml.mod file I've placed:

<!ENTITY % xhtml-basic.dtd PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML Basic 1.0//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-basic/xhtml-basic10.dtd" >

Now the 'p' element and it's subelements are avaibable for use in my para element.
