Too much latitude in Nmtoken characters?
I don't understand why such a wide choice of characters are allowed in in the June XML Syntax specification.  Nmtoken ::= (NameChar)+ Because  NameChar ::= Letter | Digit | MiscName  MiscName ::= '.' | '-' | '_' | ':' | CombiningChar | Ignorable | Extender  Ignorable ::= a whole bunch of characters like "zero width non-joiner", "right-to-left mark", and "zero width no-break space" This seems to allow Nmtokens that aren't visible to the human eye, for example, consisting of a single zero width non-joiner. My limited understanding of SGML suggests that a Nmtoken is more like a Name rather than a superset of it. For that matter, is "9" a sensible Nmtoken? xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers Archived as: http://www.lists.ic.ac.uk/hypermail/xml-dev/ To unsubscribe, send to majordomo@i... the following message; unsubscribe xml-dev List coordinator, Henry Rzepa (rzepa@i...)
