   XML 1.1 and friends are now W3C Recommendations

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

The W3C has just issued four recommendations:

	XML 1.1 (the new version with support for arbitrary scripts in markup,
		IBM newlines, and optional normalization checking)
	XML 1.0, 3rd Edition (the sum of all errata issued up to date)
	Namespaces 1.1 (for use with XML 1.1, supports undeclaring arbitrary
	XML Infoset 2nd Edition (the sum of all errata, clarifies that XML 1.0
		and XML 1.1 share the same Infoset)

Nattering nabobs of negativism will doubtless be glad to note that XML
1.1 parsers MUST support XML 1.0 as well, and that human and mechanical
XML generators SHOULD generate XML 1.0 unless there is a specific reason
to generate XML 1.1.
