RE: xml:href, xml:rel and xml:type
It's a side issue but what relationship is explicit by enclosure? IS-A or HAS-A? Seems simple enough but this is where this has fallen apart in the past. We think it is a simple, easy to recognize relationship and it turns out what we think we know just ain't so. The evidence only supports HAS-A. A post-2000 discussion of architectural forms reinforces the basic dilemma of web technology: it is a system attempting to be THE systems of systems and I've no knowledge of any system succeeding at that for more than one turn of the wheel. A lot of nonsense can be avoided by saying "We are only spec'ing this for the web. Full stop." And then not nudging or winking that the only system of concern for others is the web. That is the nonsense that defeats separation of concerns. len -----Original Message----- From: Rushforth, Peter [mailto:Peter.Rushforth@NRCan-RNCan.gc.ca] Sent: Monday, April 16, 2012 10:04 AM To: Michael Kay; firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: RE: xml:href, xml:rel and xml:type One of the ways that XML allows (forces?) us to model a relationship is with enclosing elements: <factory><name>Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory</name><location>England</location></factory>
