   RE: [xml-dev] SkunkLink: a skunkworks XML linking proposal

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

If href="" is restricted in the xml namespace to 
declare a relationship and the tag name is the 
identifier of the functional behavior what does http://somestringPartitionedInconsistentlyToAddSemantics 
mean when it occurs in an email?

To provide the *type* of linking?  Is that what the 
attribute signifies or is that what the tag name signifies?
Or is that entirely what is "http://"; ?

Simple hyperlinks as specified by xml:href do 
not have an implied UI behavior; they have an 
implied *relationship*. <snip />

The tag name would provide the semantic context (arc
role if you absolutely must), and the attribute would use the same
vocabulary used elsewhere to provide the type of linking to perform
("embedding").  The XSLT language definition would specifiy that
xml:src is required on these two elements, and both xml:href and
xml:src is ignored everywhere else in the vocabulary.  Problem solved.
