Title SGML tables for the PHIGS slide set
Abstract The paper "SGML in Practice, The PHI OS Slide Set" (RAL-92-071) describes the work undertaken to convert the text of a large set of slides to make use of the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML). This made it much easier for those in Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) to understand the semantics of each slide, and thus incorporate selected parts into existing on-line slide sets without introducing factual errors. The version described, however, did not attempt to provide markup for the tabular information included in the slides. Instead, the original tables (in tbl format, part of the Documenter's Workbench tool set) were retained, with tags inserted before and after each table. This paper discusses the problems related to tabular information in general, and the particular tables used in the Slide Set. A suitable Document Type Definition (DTD) fragment for the Slide Set, which captures the essential semantics, is described.
