   XML 1.1 and other specs

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Just wondering (again) the consequences of XML 1.1 on other specs.

The end-of-line stuff is done by the parser, will not be seen by the
applications and shouldn't have a uge impact on the other specs...

The modification of the defininition of a Name will create an
incoherence between XML 1.1 and specs such as XSLT, XPath, CSS, W3C XML
Schema part 2 or RDF (there are probably more of these which are just
the ones I am using on a daily basis!): a XML 1.1 name won't be any
longer a name for these specs.

Is there any plan to ask (or kindly suggest) to these working groups to
publish new releases of their specs?

If not, wouldn't people using the relaxed definition of names create
documents on which an XPath expression or a CSS selector can't be writen
or can't be used in a RDF document?

Probably less an issue except for applications dealing with
documentation of vocabularies, but these names won't be validated by a
xs:Name type.

Isn't there a risk to make these names "second class names" considered
as bad practice?
