Graham specialises in large volume conversion of data in many formats to XML. Find out more about what he has to offer here.
Schemas and DTDs
Graham is able to work with both standard and bespoke DTDs and schemas. Standard DTDs, schemas and specifications he is familiar with include:
DocBook is a schema maintained by the DocBook Technical Committee of OASIS. It is particularly well suited to books and papers about computer hardware and software (though it is by no means limited to these applications).
The National Library of Medicine works with a suite of DTDs that enables it to distribute its journal citation data in a widely used format. The suite has been widely adopted by journal publishers.
Graham is able to work with pre-written Relax NG schemas. A Relax NG schema specifies everything within a schema and parses the contents of a document against it. It is an extremely powerful tool that makes post-conversion clean-up a much easier process.
S1000D-conformant XML files
S1000D is an international specification for the procurement and production of technical publications. It is an SGML/XML standard for preparing, managing, and using equipment maintenance and operations information. Discretion is essential when handling the types of files needing conversion to XML files that conform to the S1000D standard. Graham has considerable experience of working with such sensitive data. He has also signed the Official Secrets Act.
