Yes, but by making it part of the core SAX protocol for setting features, we guarantee universal support for it. A parser that knows itself to be naive about namespaces can load the NamespaceFilter and push it on top of itself, almost transparently to the application. Otherwise, every application that wants namespace support needs specialized knowledge about how to recover from SAXNotSupportedExn. -- John Cowan http://www.ccil.org/~cowan cowan@c...
