RE: images and urls in xml

xml images
If XHTML is really just XML, why not embed XHTML in your XML to display an
image? For example:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>

 Here is an image: <xhtml:a xmlns:xhtml="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
href="url.html"><xhtml:img xmlns:xhtml="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
src="image.gif" alt=""/></xhtml:a>

This document will display an image in Netscape 6.1 but not with IE 6.0. If
there is a reason why this should not work (other than the fact that a
browser is not conformant), I am unaware of the reason and I'd like to hear
arguments to the contrary about requirements.

Mark, if you want, email me off line and I well send you the files I used to
test this.

Good luck,
