He has already been applauded privately and 
yes, some public hand thumping is well-deserved.  
It's one thing to know how this works and another 
to have a nice coded example to copy.  :-) 

Wouldn't an XLink module be a good thing to have?

And the spelling problem was spotted. 
He is probably madly loading the correction 
as we are hitting our send keys.

Yes! I've already been firmly gnashed on this topic, which I could never
understand, but I'm ready for a calmer discussion about it. Hopefully,
xml-dev will be a bit more open about it...

> Why was the section on XLinks not done?

Note that a lot of it is incomplete. I don't know Rick means about the
"XHTML XLink module", because as far as I'm concened, there isn't an XLink
module in XHTML 1.1/m12n. But never mind... Rick can write one, and then
we'll have XLink in XHTML, so don't let on to him :-)

Actually, I think we should all give Rick a big round of applause for a
valiant first effort... it isn't easy as I know (I modularized a version of
XHTML Basic using similar principles when the argument came round the first
time). And I only did it for Basic, Rick is doing it for the whole lot of
m12n (I presume).

I'm still disappointed that he spells XHTML wrongly in the title :-)
