   RE: [xml-dev] WD for Namespaces 1.1

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

True.  As soon as one starts depending on namespaces, 
one has pretty much said "web only" for the XML. 
That is not a smart or forward looking move.  It 
is 90sThink. Namespaces should not be core, but 
it is likely they will be.  It is one way to ensure 
that RDF gets a bigger niche.

Umm, no thanks. There are still plenty of people working with DTDs and/or
avoiding the use of namespaces where possible. I don't think that it's
appropriate to condemn them to using a non-XML parser, or am I missing something?
