Text Class Documents -- Structure


This document lays out the elements and attributes required in all Text Class texts. It is assumed that any texts to be converted to Text Class already validate against another DTD for encoding monographic materials, such as TEI Lite, that represent corresponding structures (chapters, pages, etc.). Because of the extremely lax content modelling (almost every element is defined to permit ANY of the named elements), the Text Class DTD is useful only to ensure that the nomenclatures have been changed appropriately.
