just before you press the final submit, Roma shows you a schema version of
the view of the TEI. If you can bear to repeat the work, and send me the
that chunk of
text, I can find what went wrong. Its likely that someone broke the Java
setup on the server

they start from different sources, and work in entirely different ways.
Roma takes a Relax NG schema,
and converts it to DTD. Pizza reads DTD files and mangles them.
>2. Do you recommend using Pizza Chef to generate DTDs?
only for experimental purposes. the Pizza Chef is the production tool.
an experimental replacement working with an alpha version of TEI P5.
Roma should NOT be regarded as supported, reliable, correct, normative etc!
when P5 is released, the Pizza Chef will probably not work with it; if
it does not, it is unlikely
to be fixed to do so, I think. However, the Chef will still serve P4
into the medium-term future.

using "trang", from http://www.thaiopensource.com/relaxng/trang.html.
But it will only convert a
subset of RelaxNG schemas. The job of Roma is to massage the schema to
make this work.
