   SV: [xml-dev] a useful naming convention

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

- <btag> evolves and needs to change to become a complex element.  Do you
rename <btag> to   - <Btag> because it is now a complex structure, or keep
it lower case?

A reworking of a tag as extensive as changing from a simple to a complex
type might be thought important to warrant renaming anyway. Such a
convention might well be useful, though it might also be necessary to
distinguish between the XML Schema definition of simple and complex types
(any element capable of containing a child element OR an attribute) and the
more intuitive definition given in KML (where a complex type is one that
contains child elements).
