Re: Who Is Teaching XML To Technical Writers?
There is absolutely nothing wrong with using the name "id" for an attribute that isn't an ID with document-wide uniqueness. (One might expect it to be an id with some kind of uniqueness scope, but it wouldn't be surprising to see the attribute name "id" used for an "IDREF".) Semantics in XML are defined by the document vocabulary, not by XML itself. What exactly is wrong here? - simply a failure to observe the conventions of polite society? Compared with some of the XML abuses we see, this seems pretty mild. And why do you blame the technical writers? If it's wrong, the failure is surely on the part of whoever designed the tools they are using.
