   Re: [xml-dev] Character Entities: An XML Core WG View

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

  So perhaps the W3C can recommend a way to describe the mapping 
  being used in a document or document fragment, similar to

     <myStuff xml:entities="http://simonstl.com/projects/ents/HTMLrules.xml";>
         When it's 100&deg;F out, it's hot for Ithaca.

The problem with trying to layer things is that that fragment is not
well formed. If an undefined entity was a validity rather than a well
formed error then this layering would be fine. Personally I think that
this is the only change required in this area for XML 2. A common set of
mappings is needed for other reasons, but that doesn't impact on XML
