EXTERNAL: Arbortext Editor Parsers: XML vs. SGML

They don't both return the same error because there are two different parsers, MarkIt (SGML) and Xerces (XML). Like the Help says, MarkIt may allow some constructs on which Xerces will return an error.

EXTERNAL: Arbortext Editor Parsers: XML vs. SGML

Thank you, Ed! That's what I thought was the root cause. I just didn't know that the parsing was done using third-party parsers. So Arbortext (oops... PTC) has little or no control over the similarity or lack of same in the parsing result.

We'll be changing our DTDs to try to deal with this difference in a way that hopefully removes this seeming ambiguity. I'll post the change here, if we're successful.

Or a whine if we're not. ;-D

Thanks All,
Steve Thompson

We shoudl be tryin got figure out which one is correct and where the bug
is and getting that fixed. I beleive there is only one correct answer, it
is just tricky figuring out which answer is correct.
