   RE: [xml-dev] XPointer crisis

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

There was also my proposal to just leverage XLink labels for simple fragment identifiers:
This would mean extending the use of labels beyond simply labeling resources and locators within an extended link, but this seems to me to be a very logical extension. I don't see why we need IDs for this versus a simple label explicitly for the purpose of linking. Are people looking for guarantees of uniqueness, here, for the fragment identifier?

Hope this helps anyone else who, like me, missed the initial debate.
