RE: The per-element-type namespace partition

But namespaces are not about semantics but about avoiding name clashes. In other words, the namespace spec is about telling 'foo:href' apart from 'html:href' and not about what 'foo:href' means within a certain element. Am I mistaken? Best, Don Park - mailto:donpark@d...
