Re: [xml-dev] Experiment on the Indexibility of XML Documents by Searchbots

Hi Roger,

I think the design of this experiment has some flaws:
1. With "how well" a page is indexed you seem to mean ranking only.
But showing search results in some order comes only _after_ the pages
are indexed. Mixing those 2 questions makes analysis notorious error
prone. From "XML version did not appear in the result list" you can
_not_ conclude "SE did not index the XML".
2. So my first question for example would be, does the SE recognize a
link from within the XML. To be more precise, will the SE follow an
a-element-look-alike in the XML? Or does it need the XHTML namespace
to do this? More general, if you have a site with XML only, does the
SE explore and index it properly?
