Document Structure Description 1.0

Nils Klarlund, Anders Møller, and Michael I. Schwartzbach


Document Structure Description 1.0 is a complete specification of a new XML notation for describing classes of XML documents. The notation is designed to be a simple tool based on familiar concepts. DSDs provide more flexible and precise structural descriptions than possible with DTDs or the current XML Schema proposal. A DSD generates a CSS-like default mechanism independent of formatting models. Finally, it allows an extension mechanism so that DSDs may be updated with new structural concepts.
