Technical News: 


Xml:id is a W3C Recommendation

The World Wide Web Consortium today released xml:id Version
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-xml-id-20050909/>  1.0 as a W3C
Recommendation. The specification defines an attribute name, xml:id, that
can always be treated as an identifier and hence can always be recognized,
without fetching external resources, and without relying on an internal
subset. The Recommendation is the latest deliverable of the XML Core Working
Group <http://www.w3.org/XML/Core/> , part of the W3C XML Activity
<http://www.w3.org/XML> .

construct a test harness and to format test results. Dublin Core is reused
where appropriate.
