Version 3.0 was released on November 21, 2008.
The files for Version 3.0 are available:
by anonymous FTP: //ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/pub/books/
on the Web: book3.dtd
The Tag Library for version 3.0 is here: http://dtd.nlm.nih.gov/book/tag-library/3.0/
The version 3.0 tag libraries allow direct access by tag name to the element, attribute, and parameter entity pages. To link to one of these pages, construct a URL with the following content, concatenated without spaces or separators:
the full URL of the top (http://.../index.html) page of the Tag Library
a code indicating what sort of page you are seeking:
"elem" for element pages
"attr" for attribute pages
"pe" for parameter entity pages
the tag, attribute-tag, or parameter-entity-tag (that is, the version of the names that are used in the document or in other content models, not the multi-word version).
For example, to directly address the <award-group> element in the Publishing Tag Library, assemble:
That would make the complete link: http://dtd.nlm.nih.gov/publishing/tag-library/3.0/index.html?elem=award-group.
Similarly, to link to the article-type attribute in archiving:
The complete link would be: http://dtd.nlm.nih.gov/archiving/tag-library/3.0/index.html?attr=article-type
To link to the emphasis.class parameter entity in the authoring Tag Library:
The complete link would be: http://dtd.nlm.nih.gov/articleauthoring/tag-library/3.0/index.html?pe=emphasis.class.
The full list of updates in version 3.0 is available in the Change Report.
