xml:lang: Am I doing more work than I need to be?
I have been working on development of a XML parser over the past month. It doesn't use SAX (please don't hurt me! :), but its main strength is the ability to load modules for handling different namespaces on-the-fly. I have been working on getting xml:lang support implemented, but there is one thing I'm confused about. Perhaps I didn't read the specs clearly enough, but I couldn't find the information I need. Let's say in your XML file, you have: <p xml:lang="en"> .. </p> <p xml:lang="en-GB"> .. </p> If a user has "en" set as his preferred language, I imagine the first <p> will be processed, but the second won't. Now, if the user has en-GB set has the preferred language, I would imagine the second would be processed. What about the first then? If that second <p> didn't exist, would the first ever get processed? Or is "en" always processed if "en-*" is set? Christian Hammond -- Christian Hammond - chipx86@p...
