   RE: [xml-dev] Identify PUBLICID outside of dtd?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Evidently not.  Apparently some are discovering 
well-formedness is too weak a constraint for 
some transactions.  Maybe there are better 
ideas than tag soup and hardwired processors.

As a matter of fact, freeing information from
such is where the markup technology started 
until some short-sighted web developers reversed 
that process.  That is quite a different issue 
from using a systemID or a publicID.


From: Tim Bray [mailto:tbray@textuality.com]

There was a brief wave of enthusiasm a couple of years 
ago from people who wanted to repeat SGML's mistake of placing the 
schema (i.e. a bundle of syntax constraints) at the center of 
everything, but we seem to have gotten over that. -Tim
