No,

Canonical XML is very clear in that *all* attributes in the XML namespace
are inherited when XML fragments are persisted/serialized. Thus:

a) xml:lang may appear in the prop element or on any ancestor,

b) what needs to be clarified is the behaviour for *other* attributes from
the XML namespace, such as xml:space and xml:base.

Betreff: RE: Issue: XML_LANG_CLARIFY




To be persistant, I think we all agree the xml:lang attribute can be on the
property node and doesn't have to be on a child.  Do we agree that it can
even be on the parent of the property node and still be persistant?
Should we discourage the client from doing this though?
