Re: using namespaces to version
This is just a side point, but DTD's do contain sufficient information to "support namespaces in their full generality". Note please an earlier message in this thread (http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200105/msg00112.html). It is possible to propagate namespace constraints within a DTD according to rules analogous to those which the namespace recommendation specified for names within the document entity so long as the same literal qualified name does not appear more than once in the same external entity. It is conceivable to establish scoping rules which would cover those cases as well, but that does not seem necessary. "C. M.
