XML namespace[edit]

Originally proposed at Wikidata:Property proposal/Generic

   Done: XML namespace (P7510) (Talk and documentation)


XML namespaces identifies many standard and privative XML formats. I think they can be used in many other situations. --Tinker Bell 23:53, 26 October 2019 (UTC)


  • Symbol support vote.svg Support though I'm not entirely sure the examples are correct right now... ArthurPSmith (talk) 19:08, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
    • @ArthurPSmith: Why? --Tinker Bell 05:33, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
      • @Tinker Bell: I don't have examples of use of those specific cases in front of me right now, but I thought all XML namespaces had to end in either a '/' or '#' character, so that elements using those namespaces would be properly prepended. So one of your examples looks right, but the others do not. ArthurPSmith (talk) 13:45, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
        • @ArthurPSmith: The examples are ok. You can see, for example, the XHTML namespace page, and it's source code (view-source: --Tinker Bell 18:13, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
        • Hmm, I guess I'm accustomed to the pattern in RDF, where the local part is always concatenated onto the namespace, but maybe XML itself doesn't require that? See the RDF syntax spec for details on that concatenation - which I guess it doesn't inherit from the XML spec since that spec doesn't specify it... ArthurPSmith (talk) 22:05, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
