All (esp. our markup experts Stuart, Rob, Dave) --
While looking at Don's ACI files, I noticed this:
<!DOCTYPE webcgmConfig SYSTEM "webConfig.dtd">
Small problem: there seems to be a naming error. In the current-editor
directory, the file name is "webcgmConfig21.dtd". (Don, please don't
update this on the FTP site yet, until we sort through the rest of the issue.)
Bigger QUESTION: what should such a DOCTYPE look like and what about the
conformance statements in Ch.9?
First, compare  &  with . It seems to me that  is a bit
1.) Should  show what a proper ACI DOCTYPE looks like, similar to ?
2.) If "yes", then ... what does it look like?
3.) Further to #2, shouldn't ACI DTD references be able to point to a
*permanent* central location similar to  for XCF, i.e., something like:
4.) Should 9.2.2  have a conformance bullet similar to the 3rd bullet of
, i.e., something like:
"if an appropriate document type declaration (i.e., <!DOCTYPE webcgmConfig
... >) which points to the webcgmConfig21 DTD is included immediately after
the XML declaration (i.e., <?xml...?>), the result is a valid XML document."
Opinion: I don't see any big issue here, but it appears that these bits of
Ch.9 are somewhat "rough draft" form, and can be tightened up now in
anticipation of this eventually becoming a public standard.
