SGML TOs in AF DTD 38784STD-BV9 - Demo .SGM File for a Beer Anyone?

Hi all,

Been awhile since I did SGML, (been XML last few years), but new USAF project is SGML TOs in AF DTD 38784STD-BV9.

I have the dtd and fosi stuff (provided GFE/GFI, but no demo.sgm file was in the batch of files... was hoping someone had a simple/shell/demo sgml file for starters. Anyone?

Else, it's completely starting from scratch (and the old digging for basic start point / end point tags and attributes to simply 'get going.')

Would like to avoid this - gotta build out the whole set of TOs anyway... trade for a beer at a date and location to be named later?

Hopefully someone's got a simple SGML demo file I can start with.

Thanks for all reads/replies.

Regards, Bob W.

(With beer but no .sgm file.... in Bristol, RI, US)

Hi Rick,

The closest I can provide are the 38784C DTD, FOSI, and demo SGML file from Arbortext's distributed files many years ago.

BTW: If you are working with FOSI, check out my book Practical FOSI, which is for sale at http://www.FOSIexpert.com/Practical-FOSI.html, and my FOSI QuickStart Tutorials, which are for sale at http://www.FOSIexpert.com/tutorials.html. Note that if you purchase the tutorials, you qualify for a discounted price for the book.

Good luck!

Here is Arbortext's CALS demo document from many years ago. There may be some DTD differences.

Good luck!

Suzanne,

Thanks! I appreciate it - I've frankensteined an AMCOM 38784 .sgm file to get started (just needed to get the initial file structure - headers and basic tags - eastablished so that I could get the Arbortext to open it - it's been almost a decade since I did sgml books - knocking the rust off.)

Now I'm going through that slog getting the initial req'd tags and context issues fixed so that I can use this as a strawman TO SGML book to get moving with tags and boilerplate content.

Thanks all for the help. Looks like I'm up and moving now.
