This sort of information would easily fit in an XSchema file, currently under the More element, although in a later version it would probably get and element of its own, either for inclusion under an ElementDecl or possibly free-floating under XSchema (I'll have to think about that one). However, somebody (Bill LaForge?) thought that this stuff probably shouldn't go in the schema file, as it is application-specific, not schema specific. That is, while you would presumably have a single schema for a given document class, you would probably have multiple bindings. (Please correct me if I've gotten this wrong.) Of course, there's nothing to stop you from naming bindings and keeping multiple different binding sets in a single schema file, but at some point I have to wonder why you need the schema information at all. Does an application that uses element bindings also need the other schema information, such as content model and attributes? It strikes me that the application generating the bindings is more likely to need schema information than an application using the bindings. > [David Brownell]: > >That sketch omits two important features: (a) importing bindngs > >defined for other namespaces, (b) document-specific bindings, such > >as for the "default" namespace or embedded in a document. I suspect the import problems could be solved by the general XSchema scheme of using XLink to import stuff from other files. Document-specific bindings could be handled by associating the appropriate XSchema file with the document through an XSchema PI. (I might be missing exactly what is meant by document-specific bindings here.) -- Ron Bourret xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
