It's a REAL pain, this switching of namespaces on every working draft! What is an implementor meant to do, when a new drat comes out? I have two choices that I can see: 1) Be honest - I haven't got round to reading the latest draft thoropughly enough yet to claim I have implemented it yet - so stick to the old namespace - then FXSL won't work for me, as Dimitre has had to change to accomodate saxon 8.3. or 2), change to the latest namespace, thus giving a mis-leading impression. Perforce, I choose option 2. Meanwhile, last call drafts are to come out in a few weeks, so another change will have to come. I think it's a daft idea myself. Sure, change the namespace when it reaches VCR (or PR or REC - whatever), but these changes every working draft help noone. -- Colin Paul Adams Preston Lancashire
