DTD to XML output problem!

Wed Mar 04, 2015 9:37 pm

Hi! I have the following DTD file :

Code: Select all

<!ELEMENT book (bookinfo,chapter*)>
<!ELEMENT chapter (title,section*)>
<!ELEMENT title (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT bookinfo (title,author,copyright)>
<!ELEMENT author (firstname,surname)>
<!ELEMENT copyright (year,holder)>
<!ENTITY % divers "para|programlisting|itemizedlist|orderedlist">
<!ELEMENT section (title,(%divers;)+)>
<!ELEMENT para (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT programlisting (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT holder (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT surname (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT firstname (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT year (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT itemizedlist (listitem+)>
<!ELEMENT orderedlist (listitem+)>
<!ELEMENT listitem (%divers;)+>


I'm trying to generate a xml file from this exact DTD but not every elements and child elements appear in the generated xml file. Here's my procedure, File, New, XML, Customize, Root Element : book and I've checked both Add optional content and Add first Choice particle.

Here's the xml output :

Code: Select all

<book>
    <bookinfo>
        <title></title>
        <author>
            <firstname></firstname>
            <surname></surname>
        </author>
        <copyright>
            <year></year>
            <holder></holder>
        </copyright>
    </bookinfo>
    <chapter>
        <title></title>
        <section>
            <title></title>
            <para></para>
        </section>
    </chapter>
</book>


Do you have an idea why not all my elements and child elements are included in the final xml output?

Thanks a lot for your help!
