That string is not syntactically a URN. Please see RFC 2141. It is quite explicit: All URNs have the following syntax (phrases enclosed in quotes are REQUIRED): <URN> ::= "urn:" <NID> ":" <NSS> If I'm right on this issue (and what room is there for dispute) and you are right that it cannot be interpreted as a URL in the context that we are discussing (more subtle but still, I think right) then you must agree with me that this is not a URI *of any sort* and thus in violation of the namespaces specification which is both clear and consistent in this regard. -- Paul Prescod - ISOGEN Consulting Engineer speaking for only himself http://itrc.uwaterloo.ca/~papresco "Silence," wrote Melville, "is the only Voice of God." The assertion, like its subject, cuts both ways, negating and affirming, implying both absence and presence, offering us a choice; it's a line that the Society of American Atheists could put on its letterhead and the Society of Friends could silently endorse while waiting to be moved by the spirit to speak. - Listening for Silence by Mark Slouka, Apr. 1999, Harper's xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
