Dear www-tag,

Issue fragmentInXML-28 [1] was been accepted by the TAG at their
28 Oct 2002 teleconference [2].

Do fragment identifiers refer to a syntactice element (at least for 
XML content), or can they refer to abstractions?

Example from 17.2.2 SVG fragment identifiers:

    MyDrawing.svg#svgView(viewBox(0,200,1000,1000))

The SVG spec states "This form of addressing specifies the desired 
view of the document (e.g., the region of the document to view, the 
initial zoom level) completely within the SVG fragment specification."

 From Dan Connolly:

   Do you consider the quoted paragraph above in error?

   Or do you disagree with my interpretation of it, i.e. that
   MyDrawing.svg#svgView(viewBox(0,200,1000,1000)) identifes a view
   of the drawing, and not any particular XML element (nor other
   syntactic structure) in the document.
