Description Ville Skyttä 2002-11-26 17:31:37 UTC
The doctype override boxes (detailed interface, revalidation page,
doctype-select.html) still contain entries for doctypes that were removed, eg.
HTML 3.2 and 2.0.

Ditto for fpis.cfg, doctypes.cfg, sgml.soc and xml.soc.

Additionally, I think the removal of HTML 3.2 (and maybe 2.0) DTDs will cause a
lot of complaints, IMHO it would be better to put them back.
Comment 1 Terje Bless 2002-11-26 23:26:39 UTC
Right. It was expected that some "good" DTDs would disappear in the
cleaning-frenzy. I'll add them back in in a consistent way as I find them.
Comment 2 Ville Skyttä 2002-11-28 15:08:02 UTC
Fixed the version, as the DTD cleanup happened in HEAD, and is not in the 0_6_0
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2002-11-28 15:09:11 UTC
Duh.  The version didn't change.  2nd try.
Comment 4 Terje Bless 2002-11-30 17:24:08 UTC
Setting target to 0.7.0 for HTML 2.0 and 3.2, but I think we'll keep this as a
tracking bug afterwards in case there is more that got lost in the cleanup.
Comment 5 Ville Skyttä 2004-09-28 16:45:51 UTC
Still to do: HTML 3.2 (I can take a look at that)

Do we still need both REC-html40-971218 and REC-html40-19980424?  Perhaps the
older one could just be removed?  Ditto for REC-xhtml1-20000126/REC-xhtml1-20020801.
Comment 6 Ville Skyttä 2004-10-12 17:53:18 UTC
Reassigning to myself as discussed on IRC a few minutes ago.
Comment 7 Ville Skyttä 2004-10-12 18:55:09 UTC
Ok, sgml-lib and types.conf are now cleaned up from stale DTDs.  There is still
work to do in adding the latest versions of various XML DTDs to types.conf and
sgml-lib, but that's bug 860.
