All is clear.
I know that FF is based on Mozilla, but I
read that they want to concentrate on FF.
Firefox is build from Mozilla, which is something different. You are
talking about the Mozilla Suite which is also build from Mozilla but no
longer an official Mozilla Foundation product.
Let's concentrate on the specified issue.
I just checked their web site and it seems
that there is going to be
a Mozilla 1.9.
Really? Is this Mozilla Platform 1.9 or Mozilla Suite 1.9 or perhaps
Gecko 1.9? And will it be an official product?
Indeed it is working. I have a couple of questions:
I think that we should look into the
direction of Firefox but I
do not have any hope that FF will implement those features soon.
Currently, FF 1.01 does not support simple links.
Really? What is your testcase for that? It works for me.
I tried with an XML file:
You need to declare some styles obviously. (Although you could make
work by adding <?xml-stylesheet?> right after the XML
1. why do I need to add a style sheet ? I just want to have 2 XML
documents and to establish a link between them. That is all.
2. what "magic" is done by your empty style sheet declaration ? I mean
you don't even define a type for your style-sheet - like "text/xsl";
I had a suspicion about that, but I just tried anyway just to see
if it is working.
And with an HTML file:
XLink was never designed to work in text/html documents. Furthermore,
namespaces are not a defined specification for text/html documents
I am sure that you can understand better from the context. Just try
harder this time.
Both fail under FF.
The first actually works, but as long as you do not add styling Firefox
just shows the source.
FF tries to be a 'mainstream' browser,
so, implementing features
that are not used by any site I know cannot be on their priority
By any site *you* know?
Yes, by any site I know.
Perhaps I misunderstood, but did you said that because you consider
yourself a mainstream user or so?
You whole e-mail is build with a superiority tone. You don't say
"FF supports simple links. Please provide a sample were this is
failing" but instead choose to say:
You are quite an arrogant person, aren't you
Care to explain?
"Really? What is your testcase for that?"
And why do you underline the word "you" ?
"By any site *you* know?"
You assume that I only know a few sites.
All of this is quite obvious so, I do not understand you ask for
explanations about it.
My case is pretty strong. The only thing that remains is for you to
Provide examples of sites using XLINKS.
There are no sites using XLink that I know of. I do know that you need
simple XLink support for SVG and there are some sites out there s
Not sure what you are talking about.
Yes, that could be a problem in any conversation.
Taking things out of context does not make your point any stronger. If
you have a point.
