Basic types for representing XML DTDs
|Latest on Hackage:||0.4.0.0|
This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.
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
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
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.
