RE: WD for Namespaces 1.1
But that's a point. All "W3C" technologies use them. Is XML W3C-only? If we put namespaces in the core, the du jure spec says any implementation has to support them. Why do it? All one has to do is what is done now; point a spec that needs them toward the namespace rec. It's easy, it's clear, and the option to try something else is preserved or to do away with it altogether when one doesn't need it. len -----Original Message----- From: Ronald Bourret [mailto:rpbourret@r...] Ann Navarro wrote: > > At 03:57 PM 4/4/2002 -0800, Ronald Bourret wrote: > >But that's just it.

What I meant is that all W3C XML technologies except the XML 1.0 spec itself use namespaces. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.) Just because you don't use namespaces doesn't mean they aren't there.
