Re: [xml-dev] Should one adopt the tag naming convention of anexisting XML vocabulary or create one's own tag naming convention?

Again I understand aesthetic differences, but I don't get this "clickable' one. How often do you really click to cut and paste just an element name? And if you do, qnames will already make one click impossible. I've written a ton of XSLT with a good number of editors, and it never even occurred to me to give this a thought. I've also never, ever heard that complaint made about XSLT on all the forums I've been.

The main problem I encounter with hyphens is in data binding to programming languages, but it boggles my mind to think that anyone would place the convenience of a programmer over the readability of the data. Hyphens and underscores are most easier for a non-programmer to read, and hyphens are easier for a non-programmer to type, so for me, it's an easy win, and I in all my time programming I've never, for example, mistaken a hyphen that's part of a name for a minus sign.

1 thing that cannot be cut and paste starting with 1 double click in an editor is no fun for me..




from a clicking point of view

I dont particularly like hyphen-case because I can't tell it apart from "hyphen" <minus> "case"

even if the compiler can.
