As with all Best Practices recommendations, its effectiveness is determined by how widespread its use is, and whether or not it eventually influences specs. At least I'm hoping to provide a rule-by-reference, rather than having developers discover this over and over independently. Also, for future reference, monasticxml.org isn't particularly interested in the "coder's perspective". It's squarely and very deliberately focused on markup works, not what's easiest for programmers from other perspectives. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com
