I have a question about DTDs and "Namespaces in XML".
First of all, is it true that any well-formed XML document according to
"Namespaces in XML" must be well-formed according to XML 1.0 in the
first place? Is it true that "Namespaces in XML" is - syntactically -
a subset of XML 1.0?
If the answer is yes, suppose that a document contains an element whose
QName is "abc:el". If the document contains a DTD, how should this
element type be declared? As "abc:el", I guess. What if the document
also contains another element "xyz:el" and the "xyz" prefix is bound
to the same namespace name as "abc"? I guess that, at the DTD level,
"abc:el" and "xyz:el" are two distinct element types and both must be
Are my conclusions right?
