   NDATA section (was: RE: [xml-dev] CDATA)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Mmmhh... very interesting.  Then I picture the NDATA section something like

<?xml version="2.0"?>
  <![CDATA[ text ]]>
  <xml:NDATA length="12" dimensional="b">|~*%_@\#!^?</xml:NDATA>
  <!-- The length would be in bits(b), bytes(B), kilo bytes(KB), etc. -->

One could prefix such an NDATA section with a length tag,
allowing the parser to simply ignore the next "length" bytes.
That essentially takes the NDATA section out of XML land.
Only drawback: regular text editors have problems with binary data.
