Re: Convention versus standard
You had to be there. Some of were still concerned about how to specify what switches to depress to load a binary value into an address or register when these things were designed. So to take it one step further - what do the "modern" xml things do when trying to interpret my example. I know that libxml2 tries to treat it as octal - and that causes me grief. What does Saxon do? Do we have a list of behaviors for xml/xsl interpreters? This would make a good addition to Roger's lists of real life conventions.
