Description martinez6 2004-12-17 13:35:25 UTC
A feature to work in a structure delivered by a dtd or scheme,
the usage of the elements should be limited by the rules scheme or dtd while
writing, a possibility to connect the elements of the dtd with style-information 
(like Framemaker+XML EDD)

Comment 3 martinez6 2004-12-20 08:58:52 UTC
Ok, i try to give more info:

With "Framamaker+XML" from "Adobe" it is possible to import a dtd-file and
create a document that follows the rules of the dtd. The dtd limits the usage of
certain elements, e.g. paragraphs and headings. This is useful for working on
structured documents like manuals, where certain elements of text should only
appear at the right place, because they have a certain funtion, e.g. describing
a part of a machine, describing how to use a feature of that machine, etc.

Its possible to work like this with a XML-editor like Epic or XMetal.
Additionally Framemaker creates a file called EDD ("Element Definition
Document") where it assigns style and formating informations to the elments of
the dtd-file used. 

It would be nice to have a feature in openoffice, which allows to import a
dtd-file and to assign styles to the elements of the dtd. 
When you write in the document based on that dtd, openoffice sould take care
that the elements are used in the order of the dtd.

Now do you understand what i mean ?

Yes I understand now. But I doubt about the wide impact of such feature among
OOo users...

Ok, you may doubt about the impact, but: 

"Word 2003" has a feature like this, but it doesnt work very well,
(because it doesn´t take care about the usage of elements in a strict dtd-order) 
so Word 2003 is not a tool of my choice as a technical writer.
If Open Office had such a feature, it would become a great alternative to
