XML News from Thursday, December 10, 2009

The W3C XML Core Working Group has posted a proposed edited recommendation of Associating Style Sheets with XML Documents 1.0, i.e. the <?xml-stylesheet?> spec. "This second edition incorporates all known errata as of the publication date, clarifies several areas left unspecified in the earlier edition, and has been restructured to allow other specifications to reuse the rules for parsing pseudo-attributes from a string. This edition, once it becomes a Recommendation, will supersede the previous edition of 29 June 1999." After a quick read, this looks like an improvement over the existing spec though a lot of details are still left unsaid.
