Re: HTML Flow objects that span rules
Ed Burns asks about starting a flow object in one rule and ending it in another. Flow objects must be atomic within their construction rules. They are *objects*, not tags. This is the main reason I don't like the so- called "HTML Flow Objects"; using the syntax '<tr>' to mean "create the flow object whose HTML representation begins with the string '<tr>'" has the strong and intuitive implication that one is generating markup, not objects, and this is exactly where Ed has gotten confused. I don't believe that this will be a problem in the public draft to be released in July. -Chris not speaking in any way for the XSL WG -- <!NOTATION SGML.Geek PUBLIC "-//Anonymous//NOTATION SGML Geek//EN"> <!ENTITY crism PUBLIC "-//O'Reilly//NONSGML Christopher R.
