Re: [SML] Preliminary EBNF for SML
Name ::= NameStart (NameChar)* NameStart ::= [a-zA-Z] | '_' | ':' NameChar ::= NameStart | [0-9] | '.' | '-' Given all the work that's currently going on to internationalise the web (and computing in general) and remove historic English bias, is it really politically or culturally acceptable to restrict element names to the English alphabet? If SML is only for English you could restrict the character data to be ascii as well to save on processing utf8 characters. If it isn't only for English then the above would presumably be one of many SML, SML-EN, and you would expect to see similar variants allowing element names in French or Russian, or Japanese?
