Subject: RE: Support for XML iso entities
Date: Wed, 15 Aug 2001 02:38:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <ADF57C3C368ED411803C00508BCDF1A5093A4E@CDDKMAIL> (raw)

I'm absolutely in favour of keeping character entity packages for XML and
SGML separate. 

I don't care much for disk space conservation, but I don't like to introduce
artificial dependencies. XML proccessing tools won't grok SDATA. And some
SGML processing tools don't grok hex numerical character references, and
besides need an SGML declaration for XML. So why make the release of one set
of features dependent on the other?

kind regards,
Peter Ring

BTW, there's a dirty trick for 'portable' character entity declarations at . I didn't
tell you.
