   RE: RE: [xml-dev] How to spell "No PSVI" in XSLT 2.0 ?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

XML has caught the hem of its skirt on a nail in the 
door frame.

Take out DTDs and comma-delimited ASCII is more attractive
than ever.


From: Mike Champion [mailto:mc@xegesis.org]

I don't think that the scenario in which all parsers anyone will 
encounter support DTDs is something we can simply assume.  SOAP, and
possibly XML 2.0 "core" don't/won't support anything specified in
a DTD, so parsers optimized for a DTD-less profile will probably
become more prevalent in the future.  Thus it's not at all clear what
the "right thing" is, and providing the option of simply throwing
away unexpandable entity references will be even more necessary.
