I ask because the same URL retrieved by two different browsers could differ wildly based on a server side browser detect. (Oh it's IE5, I'll send the XML version, Netscape 4, I'll send out something with layers). Should they still share a UUID? If not what's the relationship between URLs and UUIDs? regards, Stephen Owens Corner Software xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
