RE: Just require URLs
Hi Carl,

Carl said:
I think the URI identifying namespaces and DTDs should be URLs
not URNs. An XML document without retrievable documentation on
the DTD should be considered non-compliant. The biggest problem
isn't syntax-- it's the semantics. XML validators based on DTDs will
only identify an insignificant percentage of errors-- hardly worth it if
you ask me unless debugging software. (Though considering how
Microsoft and Netscape callously violate HTML standards, I may
need to recant.)

Didier says:
Why should URN usage for name space identification shouldn't be used? Do you
have a good argument against it? If so, let's share it. I have an argument
against URLs: location dependency.
