:Dan Brickley:

:Can't we just say that it picks up the base URI from (broadly
:conceived)
:surrounding context? It remains true that each XML document has a base
:URI. How we determine that base is the only issue here.

I agree with Dan.


:Both XML Protocol and CC/PP use seems to fall under 5.1.2, 'base URI of
:the encapsulating entity'. XML:base, by contrast, looks to fall under
:'base URI embedded in document's content'.


Do we have good reasons to limit the determination of
the base URI to a subset of the following? That is, are
any of the 4 methods suplied by rfc2396 considered harmful
for RDF?
