I am looking to create a burstspec configuration file for HTML files. We have successfully created a separate burst spec related to a DTD, but that DTD has a 'full' DOCTYPE element, while HTML does not.
For example, the DTD we got a burst working for was similar to the DITA doctype:
<!DOCTYPE topic PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DITA Topic//EN" "topic.dtd">
However, HTML just has the following for it's DOCTYPE:
Since the HTML doctype does not have a dtd specified, I have yet to find how to correctly name or place the .bcf file to burst HTML documents automatically.
Your HTML has to be XML (XHTML) to work with Arbortext/Windchill/bursting. I'm not sure that SGML doctypes are supported. Is your HTML actually XHTML? It is valid for an XML file to not have a doctype (like the example you've given) but I think that precludes its use in Arbortext, because the editor and most of the functionality depends on having a doctype/DTD/schema.
