RE: Paul has volunteered (was Re: Overloaded URIs must GO!)
Hi Paul, David said: I'd like to publicly thank Paul for enthusiastically volunteering to take on the work of submitting a proposal for an 'hname' URN namespace to the IETF. We all owe him a great debt, fame and fortune await him, etc., etc. If Paul proposes 'hname' and isn't immediately flamed to ashes by the URN elite, we should consider hname URNs for SAX2 features and properties as well as for XML namespaces. Didier says: :-))) that's it Paul you got it :-))) Seriously, read carefully RFC 2141 and be cautious with "/". Slashes have to be encoded (like the famous space in URLs is encoded in %20) so I recommend you to use other kind of delimiters like for instance ":" like: urn:hname:context1:context2:context3 You do not need to use the site DNS address if the name revolver is connected with a DNS server having the right records. If the URN is just used as an identifier without the intention to resolve the URN into a URL then no problem you can use any kind of delimiter. I remember that guys from the VRML used URNs just as names with their own local revolver (not DNS). regards Didier PH Martin mailto:martind@n... http://www.netfolder.com xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
