Re: [xml-dev] How to match targetNamespace URIs in XML Schemas to namespace declarations in XML instances when the targetNamespace attribute contains characters that are illegal in URIs?

I don't see a definition of the value space for anyURI in XML Schema 1.0
but in XML Schema 1.1 it seems to be proposed that the mapping between
lexical and value space is the identity mapping, so you would never con-
vert the backslash.
