    and printed out for easier reading However XHTML is primarily a structural markup language that describes the structure of a document Unless extensive use is made of the class or title attributes the markup does not describe the cotent of the document This is where XML comes in XML allows us to describe the content of the document Once a document is marked up in a descriptive manner it can

    the future but for now we will just manually track the sign outs Selecting a DTD There are numerous DTD s that can be used to markup a document There is a separate mailing list HWG Gutenberg DTDs devoted to developing these DTD s Basically we are encouraging everyone to use either XHTML one of our modular DTD s or TEI You can in fact use any DTD you want however it must either be widely available to the public or we will have to store it on this site XHTML Athough XHTML is familiar to most of the readers of this page it has several draw backs for use as a markup language for historical documents The chief problem is that XHTML is a structural language that describes the structure of the document rather than the content type It does not describe very well the content of the document However a document marked up in XHTML can be easily converted to a richer form and it can also be displayed quite nicely so if you don t want to use a book dtd by all means go ahead and mark up the document in XHTML It is however possible to give semantic meaning to an XHTML document by using a div or span tag and the class attribute We show you how to do this in the XHTML tutorials The Gutbook DTD s The Gutbook DTD that we have posted on this site is a modular DTD This allows a marker to add any extensions they wish to it The current DTD is far from perfect and it is hoped that it will evolve of the years and that we will add other modules to it However for stability s sake we will not be bringing out a new

    the book page numbers and it was desired to keep these in the text In order to use this dtd a copy of the bkplaypg dtd must be in the same folder teixlite dtd This DTD is an XML version ov the TEIlite DTD It is included for those familiar with this Book DTD We have just finished some elementary documentation on this DTD It should be noted that the SGML version of this DTD is used in the academic world for most markups but the markup tags are quite terse and the element grouping is far from intuitive There is a series of tutorials available teidtds1 html for those who wish to use this DTD The Importance of DTD s DTD s or schemas are a description of the way a document is marked up and contains such information as the permitted elements and attributes the permitted content model of an element and the attribute types They are particularly important in marking up historic documents as they let any future reviewer of the document know what they can expect They are also important in preventing anarchy If it wasn t for a DTD or Schema the marker would be free to mark up the document in any way they wanted Although this may be fun for the marker it would not be fun for someone who had to review the document at a later date DTD s and Schemas can be used to impose an order on a document and this is exactly what we want to do at the top level of the document where we want to make sure all the markup blurbs and e text blurbs are included When we come to the historic document proper we need a much looser state of affairs The book or poem is written and we just want to make sure we have a DTD that describes the content We will not teach you about the specifics of DTD s here There are several good tutorials and books available and also the guild has an XML class There are narrative descriptions of the various DTD s in the next few pages DTD Policy All the DTD s used must be free to use in perpetuity Note this is applies to several well known DTD s including DocBook We will maintain a series of suitable DTD s on this site These DTD s will evolve and hopefully improve over time but all old versions will be maintained We intend to follow these general principles Major versions will be offered no more frequently than every 6 months New versions should be backwardly compatible with old versions Eg documents written to gutA V 1 DTD s will still show in gutA V 2 DTD s If this is not possible a new DTD name will be supplied A list of issues will be maintained for each DTD and these issues will be discussed on the HWG mailing lists All gut dtd s should
