Either is a reasonable position to take for a suggestion like this, but I wasn't clear which you intended. > 2.2 - Discard CDATA Sections Discarding CDATA sections would have some benefits, but not the one stated, as the sequence ]]> would still have to be trapped and escaped if xmllite was to be compatible with xml 1.0. > 2.3 - Limit Character Encodings to UTF-8 and UTF-16 see comment above:-) > 3.1.1 - Impact on existing XML parsers this should also mention the (much bigger) impact on XPath that is proposed here. > 4.1.3 - Impact on applications > No impact. The impact here is that applications reading files intended for xml1.0 using & n b s p ; will be subject to silent data corruption.Changes that make previously illegal syntax legal, or previously legal syntax illegal are _much_ safer than changes that change the meaning of existing syntax. > 4.3 - Allow Nested Comments you don't say what parsing rules you want for comments. <!-- aaaa <!-- --> is currently illegal. Your suggested change 4.2 would make it legal and have comment text " aaaa <! " but the addition of 4.3 would presumably change the rules so that --> closed only the inner comment, and so some later part of the document is also commented. So effectively 4.3 would imply changing the existing rule that you can't have a comment containing -- to a new rule saying you can't have a comment containing <!--. > 4.4 - Preserve White Space in Attributes again changing the meaning of existing syntax implies silent data corruption.
