Yep. I was thinking of the prefix mappings (startPrefixMapping &
...typing to fast without thinking.
In-scope namespaces are needed for many applications--including XSLT.
I also embed
QName values in many of my applications and there I also need in-scope
resolve those QName values.
I still find SAX hard to implement against in terms of "XML
Components". It is OK
for a parser interface. That's my personal preference though...
