XFM (or something similar)
All, Some time ago, as part of the SML discussions an idea was mooted that some sort of standard notation describing how XML parsers differ, would be useful. For want of a better name it was called XFM - XML Features Manifest. (The obvious name for us SGML crusty types would be "XML Declaration" but that name is taken.). The idea is that parser writers and document creators would have a notation to use to describe their tools/documents and thus 1) improve interoperability 2) Make it easier to compare/select tools For example, a non-validating XML parser have an XFM that specified things like: 0) DTD Awareness 1) Expansion of external entites 2) Enforcement of Unicode name rules 3) character set support yada, yada Do xml-dev'ers think XFM is a good idea? If so, in order not to clutter up this list, send me the things you would like to see in XFM. I will pull'em together and report back to XML-DEV with an ordered list. If not, lets meet in the bar at XML'99 anyway. Any excuse will do:-) Please put "XFM:" in the title of your e-mails. Thanks. xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
