40051 DTD 4.3 to 5.4 Convert?

40051 DTD 4.3 to 5.4 Convert?

Does anyone have the old EMS-2 40051 DTDs from Arbortext 4.3 converted and recompiled for 5.4?

Since 4.3 won't run simultaneously with 5.4, it makes it hard to cut and paste from one to the other. Not to mention the mapped key shortcuts are different between versions and I keep deleting tags instead of modifying them.

I know maintenae.dtd compiles wrong...not sure about the others. Shoot, they won't even recompile correctly for 4.3.1!

Thanks,

Correction, it compiles wrong for 4.3.1 (changes capitalization on tag sets which makes document invalid)...it doesn't compile at all under 5.4.

Is this an SGML DTD? If so check the declaration file. There is a setting
in there for case sensitivity that is probably wrong.

Interesting...so that might fix for 4.3.1...wonder if O'Neil has any for version 5?

For posterity's sake, I did find my answer. There is a migration guide at the help center about moving to 5 and it gives a number of pointers about how the new Xerces compiler is stricter than the old MarkIt compiler.

That said, my issue actually turned out to be that in 5.4 it was using the 5.4 custom doctype paths even though the DTD I was compiling was in the old directories and it was dying on a dependency that was in the old custom files. Unfortunately, the pop-up window just says it crashed...got all the debug windows turned on and that showed up in one of them.
