[SML] Without attrs, you don't need empty elements...
Maybe I'm just slow on the uptake, but I suddenly realized that if SML omits attributes, there's not likely to be a need for empty elements. (Scan your favorite XML sources and see how often there are empty elements with *no* attributes.) Dunno if that makes much difference in the parser, or even in user understandability (having both <Foo></Foo> and <Foo /> available might offend Occam), but it's interesting how one simplification can naturally lead to another... -Joshua Smith xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
