Re: [xml-dev] Lessons learned from the XML experiment


Almost the entire set of capabilities of the modern day internet rely on parsing relatively short strings with dotted notation.  Somehow I'm able to reliably communicate with hrennau@yahoo.de and find lists.xml.org in spite of this supposed short coming...   Moreover, using such a notation (ala Java package style) won't some how break any capability to scope identifiers and contextual shortcuts can still be used:

<org.w3c.html><body><title>Yes it works</title></body></org.w3c.html>

can still imply that the inner elements are in the scope of the outermost element...

Do you think the comparison is appropriate? Compare the scope within which reliable identification must be achieved: Java code finding Java code; and anything finding anything. How come you didn't notice?

So Java is broken because there's no international standard for package names like org.w3.dom?

How come I didn't notice?
