Transformation de types dans les systèmes d'édition de documents structurés

Abstract : In structured editing systems, documents are considered as logical
structures made up of typed components. These are defined in a generic
structure representing the organization of the whole document. Such
systems are based on a strong type checking of documents, such that any
change to a type definition makes documents unprocessable. The evolution
of a type definition in a generic structure is called a static type
transformation. The structural changes to elements during an editing
session are called dynamic transformation. The aim of this thesis is to
study the problems induced by the static and dynamic type

The first part is an introduction to structured documents editing
systems and standards such as SGML, DSSSL, ODA.

The second part explains the main changes that could occur in a type
definition, along with a taxonomy of elementary transformations.

The third part presents a mathematical type modelling relevant to either
dynamic or static type transformations :

1. For static transformations, the important characteristics of types
are represented and used to rigorously express the possible changes.

2. Types are assimilated to trees and two types can be compared in order
to point out the relation (sub-type, factor, cluster, equivalence,
compatibility) that links them.

3. Finally, a grammatical approach considers a document as a word which
is part of a language. The words of that language are generated from an
alphabet composed of the identifiers of the basic types of the system,
the identifiers of the generic structures and a set of symbols
representing the available constructors.
