Once you've decided you need them, make them as easy to rekey as possible -- e.g. avoid sequences like l1 or 0O0o0 or 5S5, and make sure characters are hex-escaped where necessary. Beyond that, since I doubt many people actually memorise namespace URIs any more than most SGML people memorised formal public identifiers, I don't think the trailing slash matters -- people are going to copy from working examples. If we'd had longer to work on the namespace design it still think we'd have ended up with some sort of XML catalogue at the "other end". I've recently been thinking about this some more, but the margin of this emailer is too small... er, I mean, it's a topic for another thread :) Liam -- Liam Quin, W3C XML Activity Lead, http://www.w3.org/People/Quin/ http://www.holoweb.net/~liam/ * http://www.fromoldbooks.org/
