# dtd-types: Basic types for representing XML DTDs

[ bsd3, data, library, text, xml ] [ Propose Tags ]

This package provides types to represent an XML Document Type Declaration (DTD) as defined in W3C specifications (http://www.w3.org/XML/Core/#Publications). It is intended to be compatible with and extend the set of types in Data.XML.Types provided by the xml-types package.

Following the philosophy of Data.XML.Types, the types in this module are not intended to be a strict and complete representation of the model in the W3C specifications; rather, they are intended to be convenient and type-safe for the kinds of processing of DTDs that are commonly done in practice. As such, this model is compatible with both Version 1.0 and Version 1.1 of the XML specification.

Therefore, these types are not suitable for type-level validation of the syntax of a DTD. For example: these types are more lenient than the specs about the characters that are allowed in various locations in a DTD; entities of various kinds only appear as distinct syntactic elements in places where they are commonly needed when processing DTDs; etc.

Conditional sections are not represented in these types. They should be handled directly by parsers and renderers, if needed.
