More complex xml languages have various
models for how they handle unknown markup,
and unknown namespaces.
the following three examples, probably not
html(not xml but what the hell):
ignore unknown markup, unknown attributes,
make attributes available to Document Object
Model, parse subtrees.
svg: ignore unknown namespaced markup, do
not parse subtree, ignore namespaced
attributes, parse element.
unknown markup without a namespace within
the xsl namespaced stylesheet element is not
namespaced markup within the xsl namespaced
stylesheet element is ignored, but is
available to the xslt via document('')
Now the thing that's been bugging me is I
would like to have a language that provides
me the syntactical structure to define these
ways of handling namespaced and unknown
markup without throwing all validation out
the window. The namespace routing language
looks like it comes close but it doesn't
seem to have everything I need (or is that
want) am I correct in saying that this
language does not exist and if I want it I
better make it or does anyone know of
anything that does what I want?
