[July 02, 2000] Writing I-Ds and RFCs using XML was published as an IETF Network Working Group Internet-Draft (draft-mrose-writing-rfcs-00.txt) in the 'informational' category. Date: February 1999, Expires: August 02, 1999. The author is Marshall T. Rose (Invisible Worlds, Inc.). The memo "describes how to write a document for the I-D and RFC series using the Extensible Markup Language (XML). The memo has three goals: 1) To describe a simple XML Document Type Definition (DTD) that is powerful enough to handle the simple formatting requirements of RFC-like documents whilst allowing for meaningful markup of descriptive qualities; 2) To describe software that processes XML source files, including a tool that produces documents conforming to RFC 2223, HTML format, and so on; 3) To provide the proof-of-concept for the first two goals (this memo was written using this DTD and produced using that software)."
The Mappa.Mundi project also created an RFC XML DTD.
