I've updated the TREX website
The only change to the language is that I've refined the way it handles merging included grammars. See:
for more information.
I've also done a complete implementation of XHTML modularization in TREX. See:
This has been done by hand not automatically, so there are probably bugs, but it takes full advantage of TREX. Notably, with TREX there's no need to create a model module specific to the combination of modules you are using; you just have to include the modules you need. I was also pleasantly surprised to discover that it was possible to implement exceptions in TREX (used in HTML 4 to, for example, prevent nested links), even though there's no specific exceptions feature in TREX. I've added an explanation of this technique to the tutorial:
The sample implementation has also been updated to match the language spec and fix some bugs.
