Palm Address DTD

Palm Address DTD

What is it?

  • This is an attempt to create an XML DTD (Document Type Definition) for the Address Database of a PalmPilot (and the like).

  • The initial draft was created by Michael Wiedmann and was made publicly available in January 2000.

  • Several people are still discussing the final structure of the DTD and plan to create stylesheets (DSSSL, XSL) for postprocessing.

How can I participate?

If you are interested to join us send email to

Some experience in writing DTDs and/or DSSSL/XSL stylesheets would be great but is by no means mandatory!


New in 0.0.4:

  • Changed system identifier to new domain (no visible changes otherwise).
