Rushforth, Peter scripsit:

It does and it doesn't.  The MicroXML data model knows nothing of
namespaces.  However, attributes are permitted to have prefixes in my
draft (to which James has not raised a serious objection).  So it's up to
the application if it wants to interpret element names and/or attribute
names as referring to QNames.  The MicroLark API for Element class has
some convenience methods for returning the namespace URI associated with
either an element or an attribute.

> Are namespaces part of the XDM such that they would have to be included?  

If a document is not namespace-valid per the XML Namespace rec, it does not
have an XDM, but is still well-formed XML.

Why are well-meaning Westerners so concerned that   John Cowan

the end of Chinese culture? [...]  We have had      http://www.ccil.org/~cowan
Chinese restaurants in America for over a century,
and it hasn't made us Chinese.  On the contrary,
we obliged the Chinese to invent chop suey.            --Marshall Sahlins
