IBTWSH Draft Version 5
Date: Fri, 19 Feb 1999 14:41:19 -0500 From: John Cowan <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: XML Dev <email@example.com> Subject: ANNOUNCE: IBTWSH draft 5
Draft 5 of the Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Simple Hypertext DTD is now out at http://www.ccil.org/~cowan/XML/ibtwsh.dtd. There are two main new features:
1) The references to the XML-ized entity sets are no longer commented out, so you'll need them to do validation against IBTWSH. You can retrieve them at:
2) I have added the elements HTML, HEAD, TITLE, STYLE, and BODY, so that IBTWSH can be used to describe complete documents as well as document parts. Appropriate content models and attribute lists are supplied. If HTML is used, then HEAD, TITLE, and BODY are mandatory. You can suppress the declaration of these elements by setting a parameter entity, for backward compatibility.
Note: There is an incompatibility between IBTWSH documents and HTML 4.0 documents, in that under IBTWSH, but not HTML, character data can appear directly within the BODY element without an intervening block element. This may be fixed eventually. Most browsers (as opposed to validators) don't care.
