Subject: Re: [ebxml-msg] xml namespace


On the contrary, I have experienced with a number of XML parsers
and validators that would choke on such a declaration. These include
Microsoft's Internet Explorer and TIBCO's Extensibility XML
Authority/Instance products.

http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml-names/ states:

Namespace Constraint: Leading "XML"
Prefixes beginning with the three-letter sequence x, m, l, in any case
combination, are reserved for use by XML and XML-related specifications.

When I add the suggested line to the schema, I get the following
error from TIBCO Extensibility XML Authority:

Parser Error. 'Illegal Namespace prefix: "xml".'
Namespace prefix should not start with 'xml' - that is reserved.

Let's get a general agreement on whether the suggested line is needed
before posting the revised schema to the designated location.
