Re: [xml-dev] Global or shared namespace?

Unexpected maybe, but not an exception :=) .

The W3C has created pages on most (if not all) the URIs used as 
namespaces. Try for instance:



These pages contain a short description and, sometimes, a link to the 
corresponding specification.

Some of them point to RDDL documents, for instance:


Content negociation is performed for these URIs and, depending on how 
your browser is configured, you can also receive other documents such as 
a W3C XML Schema.

This makes my suggestion to give a URI for the "no namespace" stronger 
:) ...

See you in Orlando for XML 2001.
