   Re: [xml-dev] Talking of HTML.... Anyone like lock-in?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I sent a formal comment on that "feature" and was advised it was an 
error that would be corrected; the intention was to _allow_ the 
schemaLocation attribute.

That reduces the shock value, but it's still pretty silly. Why don't 
they just allow attributes from any foreign namespace on every element 
like schema languages do and let processors ignore the attributes they 
don't recognize?

(I didn't fare so well with my accompanying suggestion that it was 
absurd to use XML Schema for XHTML validation, as there are so many 
constraints it can't model. The response to that was more like "Harumph! 
XML Schema is an official W3 recommendation!". ;)
