I really like the links you've added out to RNC, RNG, and DTD schemas
after each XML example.  Very nice.

One problem -- the DTDs aren't parsing as correct XML.  The parser in my
web browser is demanding that the "<?xml ..." line include a version

> I've updated the spec in CVS.  Here are the changes:

> ("PROPERTY-LIST" -> "PROPERTIES"; RFC dates -> ISO dates; etc.)
> Lincoln said yes to all the changes.
> - results of the template file are now saved to "das2_get.html"
> Given what Steve said today this means the web site should be

>   - added a README describing how the spec is made from the

> Note: You can edit the spec directly as a normal HTML file.
> The templating language I use is ZopePageTemplates (also
> called "TAL") which extends HTML only through attributes.
