Tim's suggestion (a namespace URI plus > the root element type) sounds very interesting. I was not suggesting that the URI be the URI of the DTD, rather that this be a 'standalone' URI in the same fashion of the namespace URI. This provides the same type of unique document type identification as does the namespace URI without predicating the existence of a DTD. In some cases the DTD URI might be appropriate, in other cases a schema URI might be appropriate, in other cases a uuid. In your attached e-mails there are several excellent solutions to this problem in a similar vein. Use of a Content-Type parameter for text/xml and application/xml has the same expressiveness as a distinct header, and since we are in reality subtyping the content type this is perhaps more appropriate, and would easily fit into RFC 2376. I assume that this parameter could be used with other content-types such as text/sgml? Jonathan Borden http://jabr.ne.mediaone.net xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
