[XML-SIG] SAX 2.0 names
01 Mar 2000 12:28:17 -0600
Can someone step back a second and refresh me (us) on where the name
tuples will be used?
* SAX2 defines URI, localname, and rawname as parameters for elements.
* SAX2 `Attributes' class has seperate attributes for them.
* DOM has seperate attributes in Element and Attr (Node, actually).
* My proposal for merging DOM and SAX has them as seperate attributes
on elements and attributes.
The only place I see the need for a tuple is as an index into an
`Attr' dictionary (as a shortcut for DOM's Attr accessors). Once
you've delved into the `Attr' dictionary, the attribute itself already
includes the rawname/prefix.
Since the prefix/rawname is available in the Attr, I see no need at
all to include the prefix in the tuple that is used in the dictionary
shortcut for accessing attributes.
Where am I missing something?
The biggest thing I see is the disconnect between SAX2's `rawname' and
