Namespace: CSS in addition to prefix (was: CSS instead of Namespace)


>> I propose to specify namespace not only in tags themselves,

First, let it will be
"Namespace: CSS in addition to prefix".

MB> CSS namespace awareness is crucial for proper styling of XML documents.
MB> MB> [1] http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-namespace/

Styling will be applied after resolving namespace:
either when

s {
  namespace: xinclude;
  element:   include;
t {
  namespace: xinclude;
  element:   fallback;

is in css-file, or when that is in separate ns-file, i.e.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet    type="text/ns"  href="my-namespaces.ns"?>


MB> Does not look right. This will hide namespace information from the XML
MB> parser

If parser does not want to read it. Certainly.

MB> unless it is able to parse CSS as well.

How long ago parsers was not capable to interpret namespace prefix ?
But community forced it to parse.
It's the same with additional file.

I.e. gold is to separate secondary information from primary content!
