I don't know of anything, and offhand I'd say that any tool which could do this without a user-provided configuration file would need an ESP component. (as in, "reading my mind") ;-)

There were some methods of using DTDs which accomplished something similar. You take the original DTD, add special attributes to each element declaration
which described the aliases, run it through an XSLT processor, and out would come the renamed structures. It was called "architectural forms". You can find a (draft) paper
by John Cowan on a simplified syntax for arch forms at ; an XSLT tool which implements part of the standard HyTime arch forms syntax is at

I would appriciate any help, thanks in advance, Gergely Hungary
