"4.2.17. The "metalink:url" Element The "metalink:url" element contains the IRI of a file. All IRIs should lead to identical files, except in the case of type "bittorrent" where the IRI should lead to a .torrent file." Actually, don't do that. Don't make the meaning of an element totally dependent on an attribute on it. If torrent files are a special case (can there be more...?), then define a separate element. BR, Julian
