| OK, I took a look at the implementation report, and I see
|
| "The libxml2 library has had support for xml:id since version 2.6.9
| released Apr 18 2004. The support is switched on by default, and xml:id
| attributes when not in error are handled like DTD ID attributes. As a
| result they are available as ID for libxml2 XPath, XPointer
| implementation, as well as for XSLT, XML DSig and other tools or
| languages based on the libxml2 library since then."

| Chris, I think you expressed some sympathy for my comment. Be advised
| I'm now satisfied. If you're not satisfied by the WG's response, i.e.
| http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-id/2005Jun/0011.html
|
| then you'll need to send your own comment. Dom, if you have any
| related concerns, that goes for you too.
