   RE: [xml-dev] What is the rule for parsing XML in a namespace inside HTM

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Ok.  They need the PI though given those are triples 
and out-of-band info associated to in-band info.  Let's 
see what the editing apps do to support the PIs.

Later on, I found an example where they were declared 
via xmlns: 

<?Mapping XmlNamespace="animC"
                               Assembly="PresentationCore" ?>
<?Mapping XmlNamespace="animF"
                               Assembly="PresentationFramework" ?>

So now I am wondering what the rules are.  Perhaps the earlier 
example was an oversight; perhaps it is required in some 
cases; perhaps it is not required but is allowed.

As to choices of PI names, they can be as grandiose as they 
like.  I never believe HTML is THE hypertext markup language. 
Events prove me wrong.  ;-)

I can speculate about why it was designed that way, but it's still icky
IMO.  Two things:

1) I would prefer the "stat" to be declared like a regular XMLNS
2) A PI with a name like ?Mapping is a bit grandiose.  Like nobody else
would ever want that name?  It should be scoped IMO.
