Re: Dumb question about XML chars vs. Unicode
>I can't find any suggestion that those >control characters are somehow not characters Well, you could deduce it from these two sentences (from Unicode 2.0, which was current when the XML spec was first written; I haven't checked the current version): "Characters have well-defined semantics" (section 2.2) "The only C0 control code that has specified semantics in the Unicode Standard is U+0009 HORIZONTAL TAB" (section 6.1) And there seems to be a bias towards referring to "control codes" rather than "control characters". So I think someone reading Unicode 2.0 could well have inferred that they weren't really characters. But it might as well be fixed anyway. -- Richard
