Namespace prefixes optional?
I'm still trying to absorb all of the intricacies of namespaces, and I can see I have a long way to go. I'm looking at the XLink recommendation (http://www.w3.org/TR/xlink/) and I see the following: A sample set of declaration for a series of elements that use the type attribute might look as follows: <!ELEMENT student EMPTY> <!ATTLIST student xlink:type (locator) #FIXED "locator" xlink:href CDATA #REQUIRED xlink:role NMTOKEN #FIXED "student" xlink:title CDATA #IMPLIED > . . . . The following example shows how an XML document using these declarations might look: <student href="/students/patjones.xml" title="Pat Jones" /> . . . . Does this mean that once the namespace prefix has been declared in the DTD the parsers understand that (for example) "href" really means "xlink:href" (and therefore this sample document will be valid)? -- Bob Kline mailto:bkline@r... http://www.rksystems.com xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
