If you're going to report an element and all of its attributes to an application at once anyway, there's no really additional cost. That's clearly the majority case at the moment. SAX2, DOM, etc. If you're going to report an element and its attributes and attribute values as separate events, it means jumping back and forth. In the work I'm doing at the moment, that imposes genuinely annoying costs. The bindings themselves aren't so difficult - it's just a jumble of operations whose sequence is very different from the sequence of characters in the document. Still solvable, sure. Just extra work that leaves me alternately laughing and crying, as mentioned before. >"namespaces in xml" has a very clear semantics. having to do with the >universal name denoted by a given (prefix x local-part) pair. I guess I expect semantics to have something to do with signifieds rather than the creation of signifiers. To me universal names are labels, not meaning. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com -- http://monasticxml.org
