I am not so upset about non-retrivable URIs in general as non-retrievable *URLs*. http://www.w3.org/Addressing/URL/url-spec.txt "This document specifies a Uniform Resource Locator (URL), the syntax and semantics of formalized information for **location and access of resources on the Internet.**" Furthermore, that document defines the http:-syntax URL as being tied to the HTTP protocol which it clearly is not when it is abused as in xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/XSL/Transform/1.0" I haven't yet heard a defense (credible or otherwise) of this nasty and non-intuitive practice. If you don't want your URI to be locatable and retrievable on the Internet then *please do not use the URL syntax!* -- Paul Prescod - ISOGEN Consulting Engineer speaking for only himself http://itrc.uwaterloo.ca/~papresco Alabama's constitution is 100 years old, 300 pages long and has more than 600 amendments.
