I don't recall any normative schema provided with XHTML 1.0. But point taken and yes I don't like that, meaning one namespace corresponding to multiple document definitions. So perhaps we need a way to group node names under something like a namespace for processors to be able and make use of those (a browser for example). Personally, I would like the namespace to point to such a document definition and the element names (when appended to the namespace URI as fragment identifiers) to point to their type definition (the fragment of the document definition). Which sounds insane today. >>you haven't answered my question on how will processing of *old* >>documents break. >> >> > >Well, your new code will have to explicitly support both namespaces.
