RE: Towards XML 2.0
Same here, I sent a comment to the WG to propose much simpler profiles. I will see if they are interested. I'm willing to work on the specs for these simpler profiles, but only if the WG is interested otherwise it's a waste of time. I'm all for defining processor profiles to spell out specific compliance expectations and simplify to the users how they know what processor does, but I'd really like to see profiles that are a *small subset* of what even the "minimum" profile has. There's a huge range of either existing or potential XML (documents and processes) which would benefit by a 'bare bones' standard. (where of course the definition of 'bare bones' would be different from person to person ! hence the need to define a set of them !) This might be the spec to put those in, if not we'll have to write a *new* spec for "Even Simpler XML Processor Profiles" and make life yet more confusing for everyone. ---------------------------------------- David A.

And presumably it still requires processing of internal DTD for attribute default values and so on? The profiles seem more like XML 1.0 + XML Namespaces + other additional profile specific stuff, rather than simplifications. Personally it's not what I'm looking for.
