Re: Does DTD validation work with namespaces?
/ "Winchel 'Todd' Vincent, III" <winchel@m...> was heard to say: | It would be nice if someone could draft a "Namespace Hack 1.0" specification | and append it to (or even display it prominently on) the current W3C | Namespace 1.0 specification. There are a variety of *non-standard* ways we | can all dream up to make this work. The point of the W3C and standards is | just that -- *standards* -- so we know how to communicate with each other on | the Internet. That's all I'm after. Just to be clear, I meant something that isn't standardized at all and, in fact, would arguably not be XML 1.0 compliant when I said "namespace hack". The "standard" technique of adding namespace prefixes to DTDs is visible in the DTD for XML Schemas, I think, and in the DTD for MathML, and no doubt in a bunch of other places. I don't think we'll ever see it in a W3C REC, even as a non-normative appendix, because it does not in fact allow DTDs to do namespaces. Without an extension of some sort, they just can't. Be seeing you, norm -- Norman.Walsh@E... | We learn from experience that not XML Technology Center | everything which is incredible is Sun Microsystems, Inc. | untrue.--Cardinal De Retz
