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

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

So a URI is a function? 

No, a resource is a function per definition. 
A resource maps a URI to another URI in the case of a redirect.  

A URI is an argument to a resource?

It makes better sense that way.  A hyperlink is not a URI.  A hyperlink is 
a function.  A hyperlink can be a resource (and so can anything else except 
a URI).

Hmm...no, (I think) it is either/or. A redirect is a case where the 
function maps to a URI.
