Re: [xml-dev] [ANNOUNCE] New MicroXML draft available

Rand McRanderson scripsit:

> In regards to the pi's issue, just throwing this out there, but what if certain elements were reserved cross-language (which depending on the element may break backwards comp). Then we could for example reserve the style and/or link elements and use them as you would in html (this may be backwards comp for browsers, since they could treat it as weird html), this would make stylesheet pi's unneeded. This may not be a better alternative to stylesheet pi's, but it's one to think about.

It would be possible to reserve xml:style and xml:link as element names,
though MicroXML currently doesn't allow prefixes of any kind in element
names.  However, what you want is interoperability here, which means
allowing the already-standard and supported xml-stylesheet PI.
