DTD determinism test?

P: n/a
Hi,

Is there any (preferably free) tools to test the determinism / non-determinism
of a DTD? I have some very large DTDs and wouldn't like to do the testing
"manually".

I assume you mean the determinism of the content models in the DTD?
Create a document referring to it, and run it through a validating parser
that checks for determinism. RXP will do it:

Thanks! This is exactly what I needed. Although it doesn't report if a content
model IS deterministic, so I had to write a minimal non-deterministic model to
see that it really works :-)
