   Re: [xml-dev] The "what is XML" permathread revisited -- was Re:[xml-dev

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

You're right, character encoding is set for the whole file, i.e. 
'external parsed entity', I misread XML 1.1 section 4.3.3 on a late 
night rereading...
I had always thought that was the case, but thought I read differently 
in the 1.1 spec.

Still, in an XIS implementation it makes sense, even if the text would 
be converted uniformly when going to XML 1.1.
