Chapter 2. Our First Schema

Starting with a simple example (a limited number of elements and attributes and containing no namespaces), we will see how a first schema can be simply derived from the document structure, using a catalog of the elements in a document as we write a DTD for this document.

2.1. The Instance Document

The instance document, which we use in the first part of this book, is a simple library file describing a book, its author, and its characters:
