Re: Namespaces and Validating XML Parsers Question
The question and the answer address separable issues. One is, as Andrew Layman wrote: > > The namespaces specification does not provide any particular means to > associate a namespace with any defining or collateral documents (e.g. > schemas).

Which is not that of how to "associate a schema with a namespace", but that of how to associate names in a known DTD with namespaces specified in a known document. They are often conflated. The work on schemas may eventually lead to their simultaneous solution. This does not mean that they are the same. The namespace REC specifies the first issue as outside of its scope and "punts" on the second. xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
