RE: SkunkLink: a skunkworks XML linking proposal
If href="" is restricted in the xml namespace to declare a relationship and the tag name is the identifier of the functional behavior what does http://somestringPartitionedInconsistentlyToAddSemantics mean when it occurs in an email? To provide the *type* of linking? Is that what the attribute signifies or is that what the tag name signifies? Or is that entirely what is "http://" ? len -----Original Message----- From: Adam Turoff [mailto:ziggy@p...] Simple hyperlinks as specified by xml:href do not have an implied UI behavior; they have an implied *relationship*. <snip /> The tag name would provide the semantic context (arc role if you absolutely must), and the attribute would use the same vocabulary used elsewhere to provide the type of linking to perform ("embedding"). The XSLT language definition would specifiy that xml:src is required on these two elements, and both xml:href and xml:src is ignored everywhere else in the vocabulary. Problem solved.
