   RE: [xml-dev] XUL Standardization: Lessons from the RSS Civil War

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

My mistake.  I remember having a long debate with 
Dan C. about it being normative.

I would prefer it were.  In the long run, I think 
it advantageous to keep these two works symmetrical.
I understand that is a work problem.  Even the normative 
references to URIs and Unicode have problems.

Umm, what normative reference?  XML 1.0 has an *informative*
reference to ISO 8879.  The normative references are about URIs,
language tags, and Unicode.
