nsgmls, where does it store the catalog file

Discussion in 'XML' started by Steve Kostecke, Jun 5, 2006.

  1. Hi, I found nsgmls, compiled it, but I can't figure out where I'm
    supposed to put the catalog file.

    Also the "pubtext" directory that contains the DTD and such files seem t
    obe out of date (no HTML 4.01) so I found sgml-lib.tar.gz on the w3c
    website, which has the newest fiels for HTML 4.01, XHTML and many more,
    but how do I set this all up, it's really confusing me (and the irony is
    I'm usually good with setting things up on my linux box.)

    From sgml-lib.tar.gz I have this structure:

    $ ls -la validator-0.7.2/htdocs/sgml-lib

    How can I setup nsgmls so that it always uses the right file, ie,
    mapping

    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

    to the local strict.dtd (in the REC-html40-19980424 dir above) ?

    I also noticed that HTML4.cat is the same format a the HTML4.soc in the
    pubtext directory that comes wit hthe nsgml source code. Note sure if
    that helps or not.

    I'm just not sure what to do here, thanks for any help on this. I just
    want to verify my html and xml documents on my machine.

    That looks like a good start.

    Alternatively you can build something more extensive. If you download
    a validator package, it'll have one. Or you could build it yourself
    with http://valet.webthing.com/catalogue/

    Than kyou ,but what I was really after was _where_ to put the global
    catalog file so that it's always used by default, this is what confuses
    me. I've seen references in some of the docs I read about havign a
    catalog file, and many seemed to imply there was a global (on your
    system) catalog file you setup, but not very clear.

    At SGML_CATALOG_FILES.

    If you work with different SGMLDECLs, you'll also need more
    than one catalogue. Unless you come up with something clever:)
