Library declarations

When processing a reference to an external entity whose declaration contains a public identifier but no system identifier, OmniMark must be told how to locate the entity's replacement value. A library declaration performs this function.

library declarations can also be used by OmniMark in a library file specified on the command line by using the -library command-line option. A library file can be used either while an OmniMark program is being run or while a DTD is being compiled. It gives public/system identifier bindings that are only used during that run.

For example, if a DTD is being compiled with the OmniMark program on one computer, and if the result will be used on another computer (that may have a different directory structure), it is usually appropriate to put the machine-specific library file declaration in library files during each of the runs.

This example of a library declaration could be used to locate the entity sets for alphabetic characters defined in Annex D of ISO 8879.
