RE: [xml-dev] Internal references to other element values

Not within the XML document itself.  An XML document contains only data.
There is no logic processing within the elements.

Subject: [xml-dev] Internal references to other element values


Can you specify that the value of an XML element comprises the value of
another element in the same file plus another string for example? ie. Can
you specify in the XML document that the value of the subdirectory element =
value of the <map1> element plus the value specified. In other words, and
apologies in advance for the complete abuse of the notation, the
subdirectory element might look like:

<subdirectory><map1 value>abc\def</subdirectory>

but you see what I mean. Obviously this can be done using a style sheet but
this then impacts on maintenance of the actual document.
