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. regards Didier PH Martin mailto:martind@n... http://www.netfolder.com xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
