   RE: [xml-dev] Elliotte Rusty Harold on Web Services

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I assume Mike is talking about the fact that it is not possible to embed one well-formed document in another and still be conformant XML if the embedded document contains a prolog. One can resort to hacks to get around this (PIs or CDATA sections) but I assume some would rather have a "blessed" way of achieving this.

	No.  I'm not interested in seeing what the XMLP WG says in some formal round
	of mumbo-jumbo.  If you want to put forth such a vacuous accusations as "XML
	1.x is not composable as specified", please justify it here in language that
	proves it is not just a case of character assassination by quiddity.
