Re: "Introducing MicroXML, Part 1: Explore the basic principle
>Here is where I think you will find the crux of the disagreement. Indeed. The question is whether hyperlinks belong in layer 6 or layer 7. The core XML specification belongs in layer 6, and should not be polluted with stuff that has layer 7 semantics (like xml;lang). Of course, XML browsers are free to recognize the layer 7 semantics of particular namespaces if they choose. I think the hyperlinking community has never been prepared to make a proper separation between the information content of a link and its presentation semantics. That is why it is has been so hard to integrate hyperlinks into XML, which requires that separation. Michael Kay Saxonica
