Re: atoms, molecules
Bindings for Micro-parsings... This seems like a good use of the PSVI I've heard so much about: Elements with type "FooBarExpression" can be up-parsed using the XSLT @ http://example.net/FooBar/UpParse.xsl Perhaps the availability of various UpParsers for a "PSVI-Type" could be indicated in RDDL? Can RDDL make reference to a "PSVI-Type"? -Wayne Steele >From: "Simon St.Laurent" <simonstl@s...> >To: opensource@t... >CC: xml-dev@l... >Subject: Re: atoms, molecules >Date: Fri, 20 Apr 2001 13:57:11 -0400 > >At 05:04 PM 4/20/01 +0200, Anders W.
