dtd question

can i specify fixed number of children in dtd?

For example <!ELEMENT book (pages)*>
I want the number of pages to be exactly or less than 100 instead of 0 or more.

Can i achieve the above?

Thanks in advance.



  • We can't specify fixed number of children in DTD...for that you can use XML Schema.in Schema,there are attributes 'minOccurs' and 'maxOccurs' attributes.

    example :
    if we have root element and we reguired child minimum 1 time and maximum 100...we can try it by bellow code:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
