Re: [xml-dev] Ten Years Later - XML 1.0 Fifth Edition?

Hi Elliotte,

even if DTDs become external, a native support of namespaces inside 
would be relevant ; a little extension to support data types would be 
valuable as well :

<!ATTLIST image height xs:int #REQUIRED>

what about referring character entities by their Unicode names instead 
of their domain-specific names ? it's the same but less antique and more 

something like this :
instead of
or even if you still find it too long &#x2221;

or why not :
in the scope of xmlns:mathml="[URI-of-mathml]" ?
