XML users can make their own document structure and tagsets by freely defining the DTD with their intention. This freedom of defining tagsets and the structures, however, prevents the interchange of an XML document between two applications without knowing the other’s DTD. In this paper, we proposed a method to represent meaning of tags in XML documents using data registries as a semantic sharing environment. The key idea of the method is to attach a data element identifier in data registries to the corresponding tags in XML documents. Based on the method, we designed a converting process for XML documents, which make it possible to exchange XML documents between applications automatically even if they use different DTDs.
