Re: Fixing what's broke
Original Message From: "Michael Kay" >> So I'd suggest doing something like: >> >> <Book:Book> >> <Book:Author>John Grisham</> >> <Book:Title>The Case of the Hidden Claw</> >> </Book:Book> >> >> where the short, single valued elements have a truncated end tag, and the >> complex element has a normal end tag. > > I just drafted and then deleted a post that proposed the same thing. > Deleted it because I wasn't happy about what happens when you try to > italicize a word inside <p>A plain text paragraph</>. I was viewing short end tags and regular end tags as inter-changeable and at the discretion of the person/machine creating the XML. So you could get: <p>A plain <i>text</> paragraph</> or even: <p>A plain <i>text</i> paragraph</> or the creator could decide to do: <p>A plain <i>text</> paragraph</p> In much the same way as the creator gets to choose how the XML is laid out (maybe aimed at enhancing readability or compactness) the creator can choose which sorts of end tags to use where.
