In the case of XLink and XPointer, yes: I'd say these are historical curiosities, and the only interest in them is in understanding why they failed. XInclude I think has some merit: even if it's not widely used, it's viable to use it, and there are situations where I would recommend using it in preference to external entity references. But plain URIs held in user-defined attributes are probably just as effective for many applications. Regards, Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/ http://twitter.com/michaelhkay
