A hyperlink is not a URI. A hyperlink is > a function. A hyperlink can be a resource (and so can anything else except > a URI). Coming in late. Probably covered. I'm using URIs a lot in Java programming. Pretty much where ever I need a key. I'm building frameworks, and to keep things extesnible, I'll use a URI keyed Map for data, for those things whose type cannot be anticipated. (Perlish, Perlish, me.) Thus, I tend to see URIs as arguments. This breakdown of hyperlink as function, URI as argument is how I see it. The distinction between the resource and the identifier was a leap, but it's natural now. The distinction between a URI and the code that resolves it was a leap, but it's natural now. Unless it's unnatural. I'm coming in late. -- Alan Gutierrez - alan@e... - http://engrm.com/blogometer/index.html - http://engrm.com/blogometer/rss.2.0.xml
