   RE: [xml-dev] namespace URI name conventions?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Check out http://www.w3.org/1999/10/nsuri

The year part of W3C URIs generally indicates the year the URI was
allocated. (and presumably, the parts to the right abide by the policy in
effect during that year...)

Subject: [xml-dev] namespace URI name conventions?

Has anyone ever noticed any common patterns in namespace URIs to show that a
URI does represent a namespace? For example, Simon St. Laurent has namespace
URIs following the format http://www.simonstl.com/ns/foo,
http://www.simonstl.com/ns/bar, etc., and I asked him if there was any
precedent for the /ns/ part, and he said no. 

Assuming that we don't want to hang them off the root directory (e.g.
http://www.snee.com/foo) the two obvious choices are a directory name to
identify namespaces as Simon did or a subdomain (e.g.
http://mynamespaces.snee.com/foo or http://ns.snee.com/foo or whatever.)

Has anyone seen any conventions repeated often enough to qualify as
