   Re: [xml-dev] Wellformed?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

  The reason I ask is because I am trying to patch the AElfred parser to check
  for WFness of entity literals-- but I am not sure if I should be checking
  WFness upon reading the literal or upon inclusion (or both?)

WF on reading but namespace conformance after inclusion, I think.
Entities have to be WF "on their own" but the namespace rec doesn't have
any constraints at the entity level.

So it's perfectly OK to have namespace prefixes in an entity resolve to
different namespace URI at different parts of the document. (Although
msxml will error on that)

<!ENTITY x "<x:x/>">


<a xmlns:x="data:,a">&x;</a>
<a xmlns:x="data:,b">&x;</a>
