Hi,
I'm trying to find help on how to create xml DTD's and templates for Quark 6.5
at the moment i download data from my website in xml format and then i want this to be paginated into quark in a template that is created using a dtd that identifies the tags within the downloaded xml.
what i would like to know is how to set up these dtd's so that i can control what order the data is displayed in etc
and also have the power to create different templates.
Any ideas on where i can look for help?
Thanks in advance

DTD creation is somehow complex, and has nothing to do with Quark.
You have to set up your DTD manually (using a simple text editor) and then use an xtension like xml-plus or Avenue, to fetch data from your xml files.
You can start here http://www.w3schools.com/dtd/dtd_intro.asp

Here is a good tutorial:http://www.xraymag.com/pdfs/xray_v3n2_qxp_xml.pdfBut there is one bug in it. QXP don't like the first row of the XML File.Without the first row the example works.Regards
