   Re: [xml-dev] What's wrong w/ nested elements?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I noticed the problem is specifically w/ complex elements (such as <b>)
that have their own children. Such elements map to their own relational
tables. However, simple elements (such as <c>) are merely members of
other relational tables and probably that's why the tool doesn't mind
their reuse under different parents.

Yeah, actually, that's probably it. Elements with child nodes are translated
into "tables" and the other elements and attributes are "fields". Basically,
the tool treats every complex type (with complex content) as a "global"
element, no other elements can have the same name.
