Re: Re: Can XLink be fixed?
/ Joe English <jenglish@f...> was heard to say: [...] | Come to think of it, if the Infoset augmentation is expressed | as a set of attributes with a distinguished namespace name, | instead of as a new set of [information item]s, then | the current XLink draft could work unchanged. I don't think that's quite true. The XLink attributes allow you to express complex linking relationships in a fairly compact form. The augmented infoset, as proposed in the linking and style note at least, untangles the compactness and produces a more verbose, but entirely regular set of "link elements". | You just | need to explicitly state that the xlink:* attributes need | not be present in the source document, That's already true in the sense that linkbases can be external. Be seeing you, norm -- Norman.Walsh@S... | There has never been a perfect government, XML Standards Architect | because men have passions; and if they did Sun Microsystems, Inc. | not have passions, there would be no need for | government.--Voltaire
