I may be in error, or my memory may not serve me so well, but I seem to remember that to formally express the prohibitions iin the DTD would have involved great difficultie or an extensive rewrite, so it was decided just to put a written prohibition on the inclusions. If Dave Ragget, Steve Pemberton or Murray Altheim still follow this list they may be able to correct me.

  Subject: ERROR ON XHTML 1.0 DTD AND SCHEMA


  Summary of this mail

  I don't understand :
  In specification, in DTD's comment, in XML Shema's comment, i can read : "pre must not contain the img, object, big, small, sub, or sup elements."
  Or in the DTD's formalism and XML Shema's formalism, big, small, sub, or sup elements are authorized !

  Thanks for your explications.

  Bonjour,

  Je vous fait part d'une erreur concernant l'élément PRE.

  Dans les spécifications ainsi que dans les commentaires de la DTD ou du Shema XML, il est dit que l'élément "pre" n'a pas pour contenu les éléments "big, small, sub ou sup".
  Or  d'après le formalisme de la DTD ou du schema XML, ces éléments "big, small, sub ou sup" sont parfaitement autorisé !

  Comment cela se fait t'il ?
  Est ce une erreur ou est-ce que quelque chose m'échappe ?

  Merci  par avance pour vos explications.
  Benoit Chapel.

  Extraits de la spécification http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/ :

  B. Element Prohibitions
  This appendix is normative.

  The following elements have prohibitions on which elements they can contain (see SGML Exclusions). This prohibition applies to all depths of nesting, i.e. it contains all the descendant elements.

    pre 
    must not contain the img, object, big, small, sub, or sup elements.
