Title:Names, Namespaces, XML Languages and XML Definition Languages
Authors: Henry Thompson
Date:Nov 2005
Publication Title:Proceedings of XML 2005
Publication Type:Conference Paper Publication Status:Published
The construction of URIs to identify named constituents of arbitrary XML languages is explored, as a step towards managing the versioning of language definitions. In this paper I try to make a start on what I take to be a pre-requisite for making progress on the versioning problem, namely identifying exactly what a version of a language is. This in turn means exploring what is need to document a language, and this turns in to a matter of clarifying just what names in a language are and what they name. Since XML languages are constituents of the Web, we approach the task by way of considering how to construct URIs for the named constituents of XML languages.
