Re: Attribute type NMTOKEN

A possible misunderstanding here: a NMTOKEN itself can't contain whitespace, but the attribute value specification, the quoted thing after the equals sign, can: so <my-element my-name-token=" WHITESPACE"> *is* a valid NMTOKEN attribute specification. The NMTOKEN in this example is only "WHITESPACE", though; the leading (and trailing) whitespace is trimmed. -Chris -- <!NOTATION SGML.Geek PUBLIC "-//Anonymous//NOTATION SGML Geek//EN"> <!ENTITY crism PUBLIC "-//O'Reilly//NONSGML Christopher R.
