ID-ness is not the same as type (Re: Re: determining ID-nessin
Bob's comments remind me of one of the good things about the XML Schema key/keyref mechanism -- it separates 'being a key' from 'being a string/integer/date'. SGML and then XML conflated these two, which was with hindsight a mistake. It would be nice if whatever solution we come up with didn't make that mistake again. I _think_ the xml:idatt(s) proposal at least could be understood to be _additional_ information about an attribute. ht -- Henry S.
