Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: variable import hrefs?

/ Dave Pawson <daveP@dpawson.freeserve.co.uk> was heard to say:
| With the rationale thats its needed
| a) For variant forms of stylesheet?
|    E.g. to pull in either wml or html versions
| b) to facilitate selection of 'trial' versions of stylsheets
|    prior to dumping old versions known to work

No, with the rationale that it allows one to provide both a "name"
(like a public identifier or a URN) and a "location". Stupid software
can always just use the location, but, ahem, better designed software
can do something useful with the name.

                                        Be seeing you,
