Good SGML DTD viewer *or* tool for translating SGML DTDs to XML DTDs

Discussion in 'XML' started by Clifford W. Racz, Feb 12, 2004.

  1. I am an XML author and I am needing to do some SGML work as well. I am
    using James Clark's SP (SX) to transform my SGML source into an XML
    source for use with XSLTs.

    I am needing to write XSLTs for these SGML documents and it would be
    nice to have at tool that can do one of these things:
    1. graphically view an SGML DTD
    2. Transform an SGML DTD into an XML DTD (I would rather not implement
    it myself) for viewing with an XML DTD viewer
    3. or something else that can help me to do the things I described more

  3. No, I didn't try it. It sounded great when I did a Google search, but
    if you go to you see that the company is
    apparently not open for business to the general public any longer. I
    got the impression that Near and Far designer was no longer available.

  4. To graphically view an SGML DTD you should try our tool DTD-Help. I
    generates an HTML-Help file based on a DTD. A trial version is
    available at

    A tool to transform SGML to XML is available at
    MetaMorphosis is a tree transformer that supports SGML and XML DTDs
    and XML Schemas.

  5. Torsten,

    I would like to try that out. However, when I try to access anything on
    your site, I get an auto-generated error page (I think it is anyway, it
    is in a Germanic language or something and I didn't bother to go to
    Babelfish). See the attached page for my error.
