Re: [xml] Problem Creating DTD for programatically generated document

I have however been able to get a normal HTML5 doctype declatation (e.g. <!DOCTYPE HTML> to render correctly using:xmlNewDtd($1,(const xmlChar *)"HTML",NULL,NULL) .

Precisely that, no DOCTYPE declaration.

Well field name in API call may be correct given your definition, but as soo an you put anything starting with http in the system ID argument you will fail to get a DOCTYPE. What I think is happening is the library is applying the wrong formatting validation to the wrong fields (e.g. validating system ID reqirements against the extarnal arg, and validating external ID requirement against the system arg)

I'll have to look at xmlCreateIntSubset, thanks for the tip. Though I think I will pull the libxml2 source and have a look at xmlNewDtd I am rather curious if this is a bug.

Well this isn't C but I think you should be able to translate easily enough

println("----------Test programatic w/DTD document constructionl-----------");
ar xml_doc4 = xml_new_doc("1.0");
var dtd2 = xml_new_html_dtd(xml_doc3); // Works !DOCTYPE HTML , uses xmlNewDtd($1,(const xmlChar *)"HTML",NULL,NULL)
/* Displays DOCTYPE in revers order but at leasts renders DOCTYPE
var dtd2 = xml_new_dtd(xml_doc3,"HTML","","-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN");
var dtd_node:xml_node_ptr;
var r41 = xml_doc_set_root_element(xml_doc4, xml_node_ptr_of_xml_dtd_ptr(dtd2));
if isNull[xml_node_ptr](r41) do
  println("DTD not set");
var root_node4 = xml_new_node( "html");
var r42 = xml_add_child(xml_node_ptr_of_xml_doc_ptr(xml_doc4),root_node4);
if isNull[xml_node_ptr](r42) do
  println("Node r42 not set");
val e41 = xml_new_child(root_node4, Null[xml_ns_ptr],  "body","");
if isNull[xml_node_ptr](e41) do
  println("Node e42 not set");
val e42 = xml_new_text_child(e41, Null[xml_ns_ptr],  "div","Hello World");
if isNull[xml_node_ptr](e42) do
  println("Node e42 not set");
