   RE: [xml-dev] CSS Scoping in XML Namespaces

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Thanks Robert.  Fortunately, I only have to 
contend with IE for this project.  Closed worlds 
are scoped worlds by definition. ;-)

On the other hand, if the namespace prefixes 
are different, why the backslash?

Considering that CSS is in it's own syntax, 
and inside a comment, there is a distinctly 
weird feel to the concept of it having ANY 
impact on the XML namespaces.  Obviously it 
does.  Is that informally specified, formally 
specified, or just another "gotta do it 
somehow because of legacies" solution?

just escape the backslash. I have only used this in IE, so test in other 


myns1\:myelement {

myns2\:myelement {
