   RE: [xml-dev] Namespace terminology

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

A.3 of the namespace spec also uses the term *expanded form* along with
*expanded element type* and *expanded attribute type* in an attempt to
explain the relationship between a local part and a namespace name in
different contexts.  See http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml-names/#ns-expnames.

Yes, that works. The definition fits very closely, it appears in an
official document, and the connection between the name and what it
signifies is pretty logical.

* Tim Bray
| Universal names?  Unames?

Not as logical as exanded name, but if it had been in official use I
think I would have accepted it. I prefer expanded name, though.

Thanks a lot, both of you!
