Subject: RE: xml:base and issue 3

Message text written by Michael Fitzgerald
I understand that xml:base was made a W3C recommendation today (27 June
2001), along with XLink.


BTW, the spec is only 8 pages long, so you can get up to speed in only 5 or
10 minutes of reading!


This is all unfortunately 2 years too late and a dollar short.

Now you have three different ways of doing links that compete and
so instead of having consistency - confusion.

I'm wondering if mainstream users will actually bother to add XLinks
to XML documents now - and of course - we have to wait till the parsers
support all this anyway.

Underwhelmed and frustrated by what could have been.
