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

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

From all i've read and seen discussed, ns URI's aren't supposed to have any
basis in reality. Seems to me they're just a pattern to distinguish one ns
from another. If that's true, then http://nuldev.foo/my_ns is a perfectly
acceptable ns URI.

If you want a convention, pick one for yourself and go with it.
