RE: [xml-dev] Re: determining ID-ness in XML

Something else to consider:

CSS provides a Selector based on ID [1]. 

The text at [1] acknowledges that ID linking is unreliable 
(DTD might not be processed or might not exist), and presents 
a work around: using attribute selectors.

Looks to me that any solution to the 'ID problem' will have to work 
with CSS, and presumably impact the CSS specification as well, yes?
