Re: [ba-ohs-talk] LiveDTD

The quote was from the web page.  It does not necessarily reflect my views, 
and I don't think you got any license to make such an inference from my post.    (01)

 From my perspective, I found the page while researching DocBook and there 
is an example of the DocBook DTD at the site.  I thought that particularly 
useful, especially given that the DocBook DTD is rather hairy and hard to 
navigate. Any tool that can map hairy DTDs to readable html frames that 
work as well as JavaDoc is, imho, a GoodThing(tm).    (02)

Free is nice too!
And, while on the subject of value of my time integrating and maintaining a 
code base, I finally got smart.  I have half a dozen rather important (to 
me) projects going, and they share code, so, I finally put them all into 
one classpath.  Life is good!    (03)
