The XML Core WG requests publication of 
  Namespaces in XML 1.0 (Second Edition)
available at
as a Proposed Edited Recommendation (PER).  

The URL cited above is for the most recent Member-only 
version of the specification as of 2 June 2006 but
dated 14 June 2006 in anticipation of publication then.

That file is set up to be published by moving it to

The Namespaces in XML 1.0 First Edition was published on 
14 January 1999 at http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-xml-names-19990114/
The Errata document to the First Edition is at
This Second Edition incorporates these errata.  In addition,
there are several editorial changes, including a number of 
terminology changes and additions intended to produce greater 
consistency. The non-normative appendix "The Internal Structure 
of XML Namespaces" has been removed. 

The WG's decision to request publication as a PER was taken 
during a WG telcon on 2006 May 31 whose minutes may be found at 


We propose a publication date of 2006 June 14.

We propose that the PER period lasts from the date of publication
until 31 July 2006.  



XML namespaces provide a simple method for qualifying element 
and attribute names used in Extensible Markup Language documents 
by associating them with namespaces identified by URI references.
