   Are URIs Resources? (WAS RE: [xml-dev] Re: Non-infoset)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

That's the critical observation for this and many other 
threads that rely on ontological commitment to sustain 

Would anyone care to compare that to URIs as a unit of 

1.  Is a URI a resource?

2.  If it is a resource, what operations are significant?

3.  Are URIs ever ambiguous?

Yes, I know: the permathread from hell.

The writer makes choices, but a reader cannot always tell which of those
choices (if any) convey some semantics in the intentions of the writer and
which do not.  In other words, an XML document may contain more information
than the writer considers significant, but a given reader may not be able to
separate the non-significant part from the significant part.
