Property names *must* be associated with a schema, but this can (i.e. *may*) be done by making the URI to which the namespace prefix is bound the actual URI of the schema document. There may be other ways to do it. Besides, RDF is free to set tighter limits on the URIs used to identify namespaces than XML in general. XML-based standards can always set extra requirements, like the SMIL requirement (clause 5.1) that there be no internal DTD subset in SMIL documents. -- John Cowan http://www.ccil.org/~cowan cowan@c...
