Attached is a DTD that I developed in 1999-2000 for use with US Courts of Appeal opinions. The idea was to implement this as part of Emory Law School's 11th circuit collection. It was never implemented.
Pertaining to markup (eg. XML schemas and the like)
Not that things have to or even ought to be done this way, but I wanted to just post some thoughts I have been having about markup and get them out there.
Jurisdiction: Should be presented like this in this order: 1.Country, 2.Jurisdictional Subdivision, 3.Court name, 4.Location.
Presented in this order, with just this order of priority, item 4 to be optional.
If it is done this way, everything will sort out.
