= tdtd Emacs Mode for DTDs =
The tdtd package for an Emacs major mode for editing SGML and XML DTDs is available in tdtd.zip at http://www.menteith.com/wiki/tdtd/data. Installation instructions are included in the file `readme.txt` in the tdtd distribution.
''Do not bookmark anything about tdtd other than this page since this web site is still a work in progress and filenames and directories may still change.''
A tutorial on using tdtd is available at http://www.menteith.com/wiki/tdtd/tutorial.
The current revision is 0.7.1 dated March 24, 1999.
Features of tdtd revision 0.7.1 include:
* Standalone mode for editing DTDs;
* "Goto" menu for locating declarations within the current buffer;
* `dtd-etags` function for creating Emacs TAGS files for easy lookup of any element, parameter entity, or notation's definition using Emacs's built-in tag-lookup functions;
* `dtd-grep` function for searching files that shares a file history with `dtd-etags` for easy searching of the same files with both functions;
* Specific font lock highlighting of declarations in XML DTDs, SGML DTDs, SGML Declarations, and System Declarations so that the important information stands out;
* XML-specific behaviour that, at user option, is triggered by automatic detection of the XML Declaration;
* Functions for writing and editing element, attribute, internal parameter entity and external parameter entity declarations and comments to ease creating and keeping a consistent style; and
* Elements and parameter entity names referenced in declarations are stored in minibuffer history to minimise retyping in new declarations.
`dtd-mode` references `sgml-validate` for its validation function. Use with Lennart Staflin's `psgml` package is recommended.
Use with `resize-minibuffer-mode` is also recommended.
The "Goto" menu is only available if you have `imenu.el`.
dtd-mode was tested using NTEmacs 19.34.1 and NTEmacs 20.3.1.
== Git ==
You can check out the latest (and possibly unstable) code using:
git clone email@example.com:tkg/tdtd.git
Before you either use or install tdtd, you will have to make `tdtd-font.el` as described in `readme.txt`.
== Ubuntu ==
tdtd has been available for Ubuntu (and, presumably, Debian) as the `tdtd` package.
