Re: escaping QName interlopers

the interlopers
Simon St.Laurent scripsit:

For RDF purposes, at least, the QName to URI mapping is done by
concatenating the namespace name with the local name, so that if
xmlns:xml is "http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace" then xml:space is
"http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespacespace".  This is ugly, wherefore
most RDF-related namespace names end in either "/" or "#".  IMHO this
is a fine convention.
