If you are styling xhtml, xhtml:script is OK, but if you are styling docbook, or some personal xml vocabulary or anything else other than xhtml, then adding a processing instruction will maintain the validity of your source, but adding an xhtml:script will not. It seems to me that editing your .rnc is easier than getting everyone who already implements script in the http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml namespace to implement a new PI. -- Henri Sivonen firstname.lastname@example.org http://hsivonen.iki.fi/
