Re: "Introducing MicroXML, Part 1: Explore the basicprinciples
A fine crop of factual errors today! David Carlisle scripsit: > In parsers that support xml:base they use it to resolve any relative > URI specified in SYSTEM entity references. This is absolutely untrue. The scope of xml:base is at most the root element: it cannot affect the DOCTYPE. Check the xml:base recommendation: not a word about system identifiers. Liam R E Quin scripsit: > What would be the use of that? The parser _needs_ to resolve (and > follow) URIs in system identifiers, so it _needs_ xml:base. Nope. Andrew Welch scripsit: > The xml parser is meant to use it to filter elements, hiding them them > from the receiving application as if they didn't exist. What fevered imagination did that notion spring from? It's true that parsers aren't (by an accident of wording) required to report elements, but there is no hint in the XML Rec (where xml:lang is defined) or any other recommendation of anything like this. -- Principles. You can't say A is John Cowan <email@example.com> made of B or vice versa. All mass http://www.ccil.org/~cowan is interaction. --Richard Feynman
