   Re: [xml-dev] attribute name/namespace question

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

In article <42456DE0.4040104@t-online.de> you write:

>		 prefix:prefix:attname="ref-to-new-value"/>

No, there can only be at most one colon in a qualified name.

See http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml-names/#ns-qualnames

Both the prefix and local part must be NCNames ("no-colon names").

>the above example is actually parsable with XOM and DOM4J under Java

Namespace-compliant parsers must report the error.
