Structure Guidelines

Structure Guidelines

This document set provides information on the correct application of the XML element set DTBook, a key segment of the DAISY/NISO Standard.

When a DAISY/NISO DTB (henceforth referred to as a DAISY DTB) includes a textual content file containing part or all of the contents of a publication, DTBook elements will be used to mark up that file. The resulting file must be valid to the XML Document Type Definition, the DTBook DTD, as specified in the DAISY/NISO Specification.
