Justin Couch, who's been working on the IETF WG on URNs, proposed a file-based resolution system that I suspect could be integrated into a lot of XML parsers without too much fuss. You can find his proposal at http://www.vlc.com.au/~justin/java/urn/file_based_resolver.html. It would only give you a local solution, instead of a global one, but that could be enough for many uses. >URNs feel a lot like FPIs to me in terms of their resolvability and lack of >infrastructure thereof, and I often wonder if they really belong mixed with >URLs. Oh well. Many places (including the university where I work) would probably switch to a URN based system of tracking resources tomorrow, *if* Navigator and IE both supported URN resolution. Occassionally when stricken with fever I consider going to work for Microsoft just to get URN resolution incorporated in to the damned browsers..... Jerome McDonough -- jmcdonou@l... | (......)
