Dear All,
I am now pleased to announce the first draft of a
document that will (hopefully) clear some of this mess
up:-

Extending XHTML
Using Modularization and Schemas to Good use in
Current and Future XHTML/XML Documents
at -- http://xhtml.waptechinfo.com/extxhtml.html

It's a bit too long to publish here!

It's a fairly 'futuristic' document, but then, this is
a fairly 'futuristic' arguement, discussing Schemas
and Modularization.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO PICK IT TO PIECES AND CRITICIZE AS
MUCH AS POSSIBLE. Any additions that I make through
your comments will be credited at the end.
I don't think there's much technically wrong though,
because it is pretty speculative. It aims to give an
introduction to extending XHTML through Modularization
and/or Schemas. It does not discuss the mechanics of
Schemas too much; but hey, judge for yourselves ;-)

In response to the SGML ideas of late, I think this is
a neat way of doing it, but then XML is still SGML.
SGML architectures are very useful though because you
don't have to resort to namespaces, as mentioned
before. This means we can have a TRUE comment=""
attribute.
Many thanks to Russell O'Connor for preparing the SGML
arcitectures, and parsing results!
Kindest Regards,
Sean B. Palmer
