DTD for standard GLOSS tokens

Namespace prefix

Here, we set things up so we can have either no namespace prefix, or a prefix, as we require. The default is to use prefix tok: and the namespace is 'http://gloss.bham.ac.uk/xmlns/tokens/'. Define %tokens.prefixed; to be IGNORE to remove prefix or define %tokens.nsprefix; to be your favourite prefix.

<!ENTITY % tokens.nsprefix "tok">
<!ENTITY % tokens.prefixed "INCLUDE">
<!ENTITY % tokens.namespace "'http://gloss.bham.ac.uk/xmlns/tokens'">

  <!ENTITY % tokens.nsattr "xmlns:%tokens.nsprefix;">
  <!ENTITY % tokens.prefix "%tokens.nsprefix;:">
<!ENTITY % tokens.nsattr "xmlns">
<!ENTITY % tokens.prefix "">

Common attributes

The common attributes for a token define its depth, line number and column number. Each of these may be omitted. We also allow a xmlns attribute. Thus a token often has format:

  l="line number"
  c="column number"

Here is the DTD code for this.

<!ENTITY % tokens.common.attr "
   %tokens.nsattr; CDATA %tokens.namespace;

Name attribute

Where required, we use attribute name="full-name" to identify the name of a token.

<!ENTITY % tokens.name.attr "

Token types

We now define the token types. This DTD is deliberately as free as possible, but the content of the elements when marked as ANY should resolve to a string of text being the value of the token, and the value of the name attribute should be a suitable name, i.e., having the correct syntax. The following list is now almost self-explanatory.

A attr (attribute) token, with syntax @name:

<!ENTITY % tokens.attr "%tokens.prefix;attr">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.attr; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.attr; %tokens.common.attr; %tokens.name.attr; >

A b64 (base 64 data) token, encoded as =data:

<!ENTITY % tokens.b64 "%tokens.prefix;b64">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.b64; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.b64; %tokens.common.attr; >

A char (character) token, with syntax 'c' or '\e':

<!ENTITY % tokens.char "%tokens.prefix;char">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.char; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.char; %tokens.common.attr; >

A cref (character reference) token, with syntax &#[0-9]+; or &#x[0-9a-f]+;:

<!ENTITY % tokens.cref "%tokens.prefix;cref">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.cref; EMPTY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.cref; %tokens.common.attr; %tokens.name.attr; >

A elt (element) token, with syntax name:

<!ENTITY % tokens.elt "%tokens.prefix;elt">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.elt; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.elt; %tokens.common.attr; %tokens.name.attr; >

A eos (end of stream) token representing the end of input:

<!ENTITY % tokens.eos "%tokens.prefix;eos">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.eos; EMPTY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.eos; %tokens.common.attr; >

A eref (entity reference) token, with syntax &name;:

<!ENTITY % tokens.eref "%tokens.prefix;eref">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.eref; EMPTY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.eref; %tokens.common.attr; %tokens.name.attr; >

A fp (floating point number) token, with usual syntax with or without exponent E :

<!ENTITY % tokens.fp "%tokens.prefix;fp">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.fp; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.fp; %tokens.common.attr; >

A hex (hexadecimal integer) token, starting 0x:

<!ENTITY % tokens.hex "%tokens.prefix;hex">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.hex; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.hex; %tokens.common.attr; >

An int (signed integer) token, eg -3453545435435535353533:

<!ENTITY % tokens.int "%tokens.prefix;int">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.int; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.int; %tokens.common.attr; >

A label token, at beginning of the line preceding TAB:

<!ENTITY % tokens.label "%tokens.prefix;label">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.label; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.label; %tokens.common.attr; %tokens.name.attr; >

The null token i.e., corresponding to java "null":

<!ENTITY % tokens.null-token "%tokens.prefix;null-token">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.null-token; EMPTY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.null-token; %tokens.common.attr; >

(Note: null is not available in the accept attribute of a mv mode.)

A pdef (parameter definition) token, with syntax ${name}="value":

<!ENTITY % tokens.pdef "%tokens.prefix;pdef">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.pdef; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.pdef; %tokens.common.attr; %tokens.name.attr; >

A pelt (pseudo element) token, with syntax !name:

<!ENTITY % tokens.pelt "%tokens.prefix;pelt">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.pelt; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.pelt; %tokens.common.attr; %tokens.name.attr; >

A pi (processing instruction) token, with syntax ?name:

<!ENTITY % tokens.pi "%tokens.prefix;pi">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.pi; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.pi; %tokens.common.attr; %tokens.name.attr; >

A pref (parameter reference) token, with syntax ${name} or $c:

<!ENTITY % tokens.pref "%tokens.prefix;pref">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.pref; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.pref; %tokens.common.attr; %tokens.name.attr; >

A punctuation token, with user-defined syntax:

<!ENTITY % tokens.punc "%tokens.prefix;punc">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.punc; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.punc; %tokens.common.attr; >

A str (string) token, with syntax "value":

<!ENTITY % tokens.str "%tokens.prefix;str">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.str; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.str; %tokens.common.attr; >

A uc (arbitrary unicode character) token, c:

<!ENTITY % tokens.uc "%tokens.prefix;uc">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.uc; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.uc; %tokens.common.attr; >

A uri token, with syntax ~value, where value has a restricted character set:

<!ENTITY % tokens.uri "%tokens.prefix;uri">
<!ELEMENT %tokens.uri; ANY >
<!ATTLIST %tokens.uri; %tokens.common.attr; >
