Re:  xml:base and fragments

The base URI of the ref element is “http://www.dictionary.com/a.html” therefore the fragment identifier *MUST* refer to an element within a.html.

Subject: xml:base and fragments


A (somewhat Talmudic) discussion on the TEI mailing list (https://listserv.brown.edu/archives/cgi-bin/wa?A0=tei-l) regarding xml:base has come to a conclusion I want to run by XML-DEV readers.

TEI defines some XML attributes as RFC 3986-compliant URIs that fully honor xml:base.

The question is whether a value in this attribute of the form #fragment refers to an XML element in the document that contains the attribute or to a location specified by xml:base.

The (almost) consensus is that to resolve such a standalone fragment, xml:base values should be ignored.

In this excerpt from example.xml

  <div xml:base="http://www.dictionary.com/a.html">
      <ref target="#apple">Apple</ref>

does #apple refer to an element in example.xml that has id="apple" or to http://www.dictionary.com/a.html#apple?

The first, right?
