Re: Does DTD validation work with namespaces?
/ James Robertson <jamesr@s...> was heard to say: | Isn't the issue that namespaces allow you | to mix information from a number of sources, | however you see fit? Every document can have | different elements, and yet still be considered | OK according to well-formed and namespace rules ... | | How do we handle _this_ behaviour, and still | make some use of DTDs? The only way that I'd consider such a document valid is if the (set of) DTDs in question all referred to each other. I would expect the content models of each DTD to specifically allow the mixtures. For example, a DocBook+MathML DTD might allow: <!ELEMENT equation (alt?, (graphic+|mediaobject+|mml:math+))> But to say that you can mix them "willy nilly" violates the principals of validity at their core. Be seeing you, norm -- Norman.Walsh@E... | The wonder is, not that the field of stars XML Technology Center | is so vast, but that man has measured Sun Microsystems, Inc. | it.--Anatole France
