Re: HTML5 and almost no namespaces

I believe some would say that is > bad design though. But are the meanings really different? A name is a name. Here's a better example: <book> <title>Mary Barton</title> <author> <nameProfile> <purpose>legal</purpose> <givenName>Elizabeth</givenName> <familyName>Gaskell</familyName> </nameProfile> <nameProfile> <purpose>authorial</purpose> <title>Mrs.</title> <familyName>Gaskell</familyName> </nameProfile> </author> </book> Here there is genuine ambiguity between the title of a book and the title of a person. The name profile schema I mentioned in my last post uses "prefix" instead. But even if it didn't, the context would disambiguate between book/title and nameProfile/title. -- Values of beeta will give rise to dom!
