/ Christian Nentwich <email@example.com> was heard to say:
| I see two futures, the simplified one and the courageous one. In the
| simplified future, parameter entities are DEAD DEAD DEAD and not getting
| up again. DTDs are DEAD, general entities are defined in schemas and
| used for character codes ONLY.
I suppose you could make references to undeclared entities a validity
error, instead of a well-formedness error, and declare them in the
schema, but ... I'm not sure everyone's going to want to be forced to
do schema validation just for their special characters.
| In the courageous future we allow
| <bold><italic>nesting</bold></italic>, which would certainly endanger
| the DOM tree species :).
| Anything less is no fun, might as well keep XML 1.0.
I see the slogan now, "LMNL or Bust!" :-)
Be seeing you,
Norman Walsh <firstname.lastname@example.org> | There is no such thing as an absolute

| sufficient for the purposes of human
| life.--John Stuart Mill
