Could you clarify some information for us. There are two issues we are
at disagreement over. Both are in relation to the specification at 
http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-names11/.

Lets use one of the examples from that page:
<?xml version="1.1"?>
<!-- elements are in the HTML namespace, in this case by default -->
<html xmlns='http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml'>
  <head><title>Frobnostication</title></head>
  <body><p>Moved to <a href='http://frob.com'>here</a>.</p></body>
</html>

A couple key developers on the JDOM project are stating that the
"href" tag is in a "null namespace" instead of the 
"http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
namespace.  Which is correct? I thought it had to be in the xhtml namespace 
for
validation...

Also, at what point does the XML1.1 and Namespace 1.1 become the current 
standard?
JDOM is currently at XML 1.0 and Namespace 1.0 because they state that 
XML1.1 is not
actually released yet (and may not be)....  However, I am trying to use XML 
1.1 for the
full internationalization support.

Thank you,
