   Re: [xml-dev] [good] Question about NS 1.1

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I would much rather be crystal clear, and cause some pain, than to be murky, 
and have people think they can ignore it.

I think such a change would call for a new version of XSLT also, that uses a 
different method of interpreting fully-qualified names. The new XSLT could 
work equally well on XML 1.0 or XML 1.1 documents.

XSLT 1.0 would continue to work unchanged, but would be restricted to XML 
1.1 documents.

I didn't start this fight, XSLT started it when it used prefixes in content. 
It accumulated bad Karma in so doing. I suggest a healthy cleansing of XSLT, 
before the bad Karma infects all of XML (if it hasn't already).
