Re: feature request
In XML 1.0, entities are the most flexible and widely supported way to manage external relationships, so that's what I use. I have to say that looking around my local disk for multiple file documents I'd have to acknowledge that they all use external parsed entities and none of them use xlink (or xinclude), and many of them use MathML which has over a thousand internal `character entities' as well, However I would still argue that conceptually entities are by design distinct from the document structure, they allow an author to split up the file as he or she pleases, without having any effect on the logical document. So if you use entities you are supposed to _expect_ that an application expands them and you are not supposed to care. (I do care, but you are supposed to do as I say, not as I do:-) David XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
