Let me re-phrase this. Are there examples of mixed-model use-cases, where one DTD does not have mixed-content, and a subordinate/contained DTD (ANY) does use mixed-content. For example, often times people put HTML inside eCommerce "description" fields, texts which are otherwise free of mixed content. (Hence the modular XHTML effort) Anyway, I feel stupid for not phrasing the question correctly... I even did some SGML publishing work 3 years back using Omnimark. So sorry. > >2.

Why would this be better? -Tim Well, the proposal is, in-essence, what the DOM model of XML does for all content -- however, given that XHTML will most likely be machine generated anyway; this little tweak would allow a non-mixed content API to be useable for eCommerce work. Moving XHTML into the "special case" category. So, I guess I was really trying to ask: 1. How common is mixed model XML usage, where a mixed-content DTD is used as a subordinate document to a non-mixed-content model. 2. Would it make sense to allow include <xhtml:plain> as a no-op for cases where xhtml mixed-content is included in eCommerce non-mixed content. Clark Also, about So. I was wondering if XHTML should be This is in-essence what the DOM model does for all content, and it makes it hard for strict non-mixed use cases. So, I was wondering if XHTML should not assume mixed-content xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
