SMIL: Explanation correct?

Hi,

Have I explained this reasonably well?

In project1.smil, this works:

 <smil xmlns:qt="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/resources/smilextensions" qt:time-slider="true" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-smil">
 <text region="region2" src="data:text/plain,Hello, my name is Carl Wells!" begin="id(sound)(00:00)" dur="00:01"/>

But reverse the order, and it produces an error in the RealPlayer:

 <smil xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-smil" xmlns:qt="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/resources/smilextensions" qt:time-slider="true">

The reason is that it uses the first xmlns value:

xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-smil"

which requires that we use escaped characters, for example «%20» for spaces and «%22» for quotation marks (").

On the other hand, because we insist on special formatting in project2.smil, we must use this:

 <smil xmlns="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-smil" xmlns:qt="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/resources/smilextensions" qt:time-slider="true">
 <text region="region2" src="data:text/plain,Hello,%20my%20name%20is%20Carl%20Wells!" begin="id(sound)(00:00)" dur="00:01"/>


John
