RE: Just require URLs
Hi David, David said: If there is going to be a namespace to distinguish <my:Blah/> from <your:Blah/>, then that probably means that I'm expecting other people to use my XML format to mark up their data. (If nobody is ever going to see my XML format but my own application, then I don't need a namespace.) And if my XML format is going to be shared to others, then it will probably have a DTD, or a Schema. So why not have the namespace URL link to that DTD/Schema by convention? It would only be a convention, of course, it wouldn't really be worthwhile to try and enforce that, or to force all XML formats to have a DTD or Schema, but I'm sure it would be handy, and it would eliminate the problem of deciding which language to use for your documentation. Didier says: I agree, At least, if the link points to something it should be at the minimum an expected standard document format. regards Didier PH Martin mailto:martind@n... http://www.netfolder.com xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
