   RE: [xml-dev] MSXML3SP3 vs illegal characters

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Oops, I agree. I misinterpreted the namespaces spec. (I have done this
many times before!)

This bogus error is not fixed in MSXML30 SP3 then.

What that means is that you are not allowed to make up your own prefixes
like "xmlsucks", not that you can't use or declare the standardized
prefix "xml".

My confusion is rapidly waxing		John Cowan
For XML Schema's too taxing:		jcowan@reutershealth.com
    I'd use DTDs			http://www.reutershealth.com
    If they had local trees --		http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
I think I best switch to RELAX NG.
