RE: Trailing slash on a namespace that is a url
Leaving off the trailing slash appears to be behaviorally natural. Syntax has both rules of specification and rules of practice. Consider how using asterisks instead of quotation marks came to mean "scary quotes." A clean spec is good, but where the system can anticipate the behaviorally natural mistakes, it should. It's just a computer. len -----Original Message----- From: Michael Kay [mailto:mike@s...] Sent: Tuesday, March 24, 2009 10:00 AM To: 'Liam Quin'; 'Andrew Welch' Cc: 'xml-dev' Subject: RE: Trailing slash on a namespace that is a url > I don't think the trailing slash > matters -- people are going to copy from working examples. > Leaving off the trailing slash from http://saxon.sf.net/ is probably the most common error with that namespace. And I definitely did choose this namespace to be memorable and short enough for people to type it by hand, which I think was a wise decision.
