<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- DTD for DAML -->
<!-- Last updated: 2006-01-18 -->
<!ELEMENT attribute EMPTY>
<!ATTLIST attribute
ref CDATA #REQUIRED
required CDATA #REQUIRED
>
<!ELEMENT attribute-type (name, object-identifier, syntax)>
<!ATTLIST attribute-type
id CDATA #REQUIRED
single-value CDATA #REQUIRED
obsolete CDATA #REQUIRED
user-modification CDATA #REQUIRED
>
<!ELEMENT class (name, object-identifier, attribute)>
<!ATTLIST class
id CDATA #REQUIRED
superior CDATA #REQUIRED
type CDATA #REQUIRED
obsolete CDATA #REQUIRED

<!ELEMENT directory-schema (attribute-type, class)>
<!ELEMENT dsml (directory-schema)>
<!ATTLIST dsml
complete CDATA #REQUIRED
>
<!ELEMENT name (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT object-identifier (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT syntax (#PCDATA)>

Example

For example, a valid schema would look like:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE dsml SYSTEM "dsml.dtd">
<dsml complete="true">
	<directory-schema>
		<attribute-type id="IOSe1ipaddress" single-value="true" obsolete="false" 
user-modification="true">
			<name>IOSe1ipaddress</name>
			<object-identifier>1.2.840.113548.3.1.2.20</object-identifier>
			<syntax>1.3.6.1.4.1.1466.115.121.1.15</syntax>
		</attribute-type>
		<class id="IOSConfigClass" superior="top" type="structural" obsolete="false">
			<name>IOSConfigClass</name>
			<object-identifier>1.2.840.113548.3.2.2.1</object-identifier>
			<attribute ref="1.2.840.113548.3.1.2.20" required="false"/>
		</class>
	</directory-schema>
</dsml>
