3. How to use the isoents.ent file

If you would like to use named entities in your DocBook file, you will need to add these lines inside the DOCTYPE declaration at the top of the file.

<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook XML V4.3//EN"
 "http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.3/docbookx.dtd"
[
<!ENTITY  % isoEnts SYSTEM
   "http://www.nmt.edu/tcc/entities/isoents.ent">
%isoEnts;
]
>

Assuming you build your DocBook document on a TCC host machine, your document will be able to use all the entities described here.

If you would prefer to work offline, download a copy of the isoents.ent file (see Section 2, “Files for downloading”) to your project directory and replace the entity declaration above with this one:

    <!ENTITY  % isoEnts SYSTEM  "isoents.ent">
