   Re: [xml-dev] A heavier-weight proposal for character entitydefinition

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

 Instead of a simple hash table that maps 
 character codes to entities, you have to have a trie.  I also see a 
 slippery slope opening up here:

Yes I know, sorry:-) But I thought I'd better speak up since mathml was
being used as a use case.

Actually it wouldn't be so bad if the entities were single characters
and we dropped ≦̸ and made people write ≦&negationslash; or
something, however you wouldn't be able to cover the old ISO entity
names using that scheme. (Does that still matter, I wonder?)
