Fwd: RE: XHTML Print & DTDs

Katrina,

In this case, your source is using the MIME type for a superceded
version of XHTML-Print [1], not the W3C Proposed Recommendation [2]. 

W3C XHTML-Print documents and XHTML 1.0 Strict documents are both
served as application/xhtml+xml. So is this mismatching a fatal error? I
think that depends entirely on the user agent. You say you're developing
a parser; my suggestion is that you find a place to get information
about XML parsing more broadly. And I suspect the Modularization of
XHTML spec [3] will be important to you, if you're not already familiar
with it. (XHTML 1.1 is "modularized" and only has one flavor (strict);
the three flavors of XHTML 1.0 predate this.)

Ed.

Then it won't be an XHTML-Print document :)
   
  But that wouldn't be a fatal error, would it?  Printers should still
process this kind of document?
   
  I have gathered a number of (supposed-to-be) XHTML-Print data from
Nokia and Samsung cellphones.  The DTD specified in both
cellphone-generated XHTML-Print files is xhtml1-strict.dtd.  They were
accepted and printed in HP printers.  
   
  Here is an example.  I got this from Samsung and the MIME header
stated that it is XHTML-Print but its DTD is strict.  Please take a
look.

  Any help and comment would be appreciated.
