xml:id support

Post by Chris Lilley » Thu Jan 20, 2005 1:14 am

With the xml:id specification stable and about to move to Candidate Recommendation, it would be very useful to see xml:id support in oXygen. It should not be especially difficult to add, as the base functionality for ID assignment is already in place. The conformance criteria are clearly defined. Its a small spec. And it allows markup vocabularies which are based on W3C XML Schema or RNG schemas to interoperate whether or not schema validation is performed.

Hi Chris and John,

We know about the xml:id draft. However if a schema is in place then this attribute should be of type ID and will be handled by oXygen. If there is not a schema then all we can do is to collect these values but we do not have information about IDREF or IDREFS attributes, that is we do not have information when to present these values in the content completion popup.

I had a similar discussion also on the TEI list a few days ago.

Best Regards,
George
