Subject: Re: [docbook] namespace markup

How about prefix and localname?  Wouldn't those be considered part of the 
markup, and appropriate class names for tag?

How about a namespace attribute:


Wouldn't that be marked with tag with class="attribute"?  It is part of the 
markup in a document.

I think Jirka is right. I currently use <uri> for XML namespaces for the
very reasons cited. The namespace is not a tag or a proper part of the
I do not think that a provision should be made in <tag> for namespaces.
Perhaps it can be added to <uri>'s type attribute...
