   Why Not NDATA? (WAS RE: [xml-dev] CDATA)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

If there were a serious requirement to do that, 
I'm sure Sun would alter their language to do that. 
That's the beauty of having one company own a piece 
of the web infrastructure:  easy to get changes made.
Over the years, there have been markup applications 
that implemented what I am describing.  When streaming data, 
it is awkward to have to punt away to fetch another file then 
come back and pick up.  I don't know what is required 
for an idea to be "great", but I understand why 
the programmers who ask for it do so. 

Why not NDATA?

Maybe we can get the Java folks to let you write "Hello World" without
creating a class structure for it as well.

I'm not sure either of those is a great idea, though they'd certainly
make some people happy.
