Is there any option to load JATS DTD 1.1 in InDesign. I have downloaded JATS DTD from the link https://jats.nlm.nih.gov/publishing/1.1d1/dtd.html but i cannot load that in InDesign because it throws some error which is attached. Can anyone help me out?
It appears that DTD file is referencing an external entity. I'm not familiar with this DTD but have you downloaded that external entity as well as the DTD?
Dear chad thanks for your suggestion. I have downloaded that external entry too but still it throws error.
JATS is the Journal Article Tag Suite, an XML DTD developed by NIH for publications and research articles placed into the world-famous NLM (National Library of Medicine). It's an exceptionally complex DTD developed specificially for STEM publishing in the NLM, and it takes a few years to master its nuances. There are several tag sets within JATS, for journal publishing, article authoring, etc.
Make sure you have the correct DTD for your type of publishing.
Did you ever solve this issue, I am experiencing the same issue.
I downloaded and installed 3 versions of JATS and was successfully imported. Have not tried to process an xml file in InDesign: I don't have any handy at this time.
I am experiencing the same with JATS 1.1 DTD.
How did you manage to import them without errors? What version did you finally use?
The sentence quoted from above: "..and it takes a few years to master its nuances..." it makes my hands to shake in terror!
I downloaded the .ZIPs from the NLM FTP site for all DTDs I found. I got (once expanded) something like this:
These seem to be the .ent files InDesign is missing when trying to load the JATS 1.1 DTD, as the error message I get are from the type "Cannot find external entity".
So... may I place these .ENT files in the same folder than the DTD file? Is it the way it worked?
Thanks very much. This is a crucial aspect of editorial design and there is few or no useful help at all about it!
