   Re: [xml-dev] Alternative "character entity" proposal

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

This is interesting.

Is scoping really necessary?  That seems like "value add" above what 
internal entities now provide, and double the amount of stacks that need 
to be maintained (namespaces and now entities).  How about removing 
scoping and limiting xmlent:xxx attributes to the XML prolog.  That 
might cause issues for SOAP/WS folks, so maybe make it be limited to the 
root element.

Rather than have a new reserved name, perhaps xmlent="...." names a set 
of resources that define xmlent:xxx mappings?  Again, external files 
will cause issues for anyone shipping XML files to a remote processor.
