Hi,

Concerning SMIL 2.0, I am totally newbie at this.

First: I see nothing on  data:text/plain  anywhere in the doc. I searched. Do I still use escaped spaces?

Next: To start using 2.0, I must start by using this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SMIL 1.0//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-smil/SMIL10.dtd">
<smil xmlns:qt="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/resources/smilextensions" qt:time-slider="true" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20/">
<?quicktime type="application/x-quicktime-media-link"?>

Ok. But in case the authors of the document are reading, there is an inconsistency. It is not clear which xmlns I should use in my <smil ...> tag:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-SMIL2-20050107/layout.html uses:
<smil xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20/">

But http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-SMIL2-20050107/extended-linking.html specifies:

<smil xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20/Language">

and http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-SMIL2-20050107/extended-media-object.html
specifies:

<smil xmlns:smil2="http://www.w3.org/2001/SMIL20/Language">

http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-SMIL2-20050107/smil-timing.html
uses:
<smil ...>

However, it seems better explained here:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-SMIL2-20050107/smil20-profile.html
See: "Conforming SMIL 2.0 Language User Agents"


It's not so clear for a newbie. I'll experiment.

Thanks,
John
