QAML.DTD

The new XML version of the Question and Answer Markup Language DTD for FAQs.
(QAML 2.1 has been written in conjunction with people from FAQ.org)
This version supports language, stylesheets, ratings and linking better.
There is also a version in text/plain.

This following code is a template of the smallest QAML document that is still valid. You must have at least the FAQ title, and one question and answer. (The id attribute is not required yet, but may be in the future, since most FAQ processing software requires an ID.)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
