perhaps I'm confused. I know that DTD's aren't really "namespace aware",
but from my reading of the namespace rec I thought there was a way (maybe
not a nice way, but a way nonetheless) to write DTD's that would work with
I thought that when validating, a parser should act like it knows
absolutely nothing about namespaces. That way, the same DTD could be used
for namespace aware and namespace un-aware parsers. From this, I assumed
that a namespace aware parser should perform validating first, and *then*
process namespaces (or something logically equivalent), so that it still
validates against the DTD.
lemme put it this way: my document uses namespaces. I know it validates
against my DTD when I use a non-namespace aware parser. Shouldn't it
validate with a namespace aware parser??
p.s. from others responses, I think this is a bug w/ the parser I'm using...
