RE: Alternatives to the W3C (was Re: Alternatives to the W3C)
Hi Simon, Simon said: That plus support for simple XLinks is about the minimum needed for building Web sites. IE 5.0 will let you read XML+CSS; it won't let you surf it. (I could try its bizarrely broken html: pseudo-namespace, but let's not even go there.) Didier replies: If we have the "link" property and the "@style" construct + EcmaScript we have about everything needed to implement two kind of links: a) simple links = object with "link" property b) extended links = objects with attached behavior. For extended links I already experimented with an EcmaScript behavior that displays a menu in which all the links are displayed as menu options. Thus, if you include an xlink:extended link in the document, this element is associated to a behavior with a selector that match to either the "xlink:extended" element or an other selector that matches to the attribute "xlink:type="extended". the behavior uses the DOM to construct the context menu from all the locators included in the extended link. So, what is then required for an Xlink support is: a) the link property b) a behavior for the xlink:extended construct c) and off course the behavior and @script constructs added to CSS. ref: http://www.w3.org/TR/becss If fact the behavior construct allows to create modular browser by adding new functionalities in a standard way if the scripts are written in EcmaScript and that they use strictly compliant DOMs. Cheers Didier PH Martin ---------------------------------------------- Email: martind@n...
