Subject: Namespaces in XML 1.0

Dear Mr. Bray,

Out of curiousity, I was reading some XML specs and saw that the use
of 'Letter' in XML 1.0 for 'Name'(s) was replaced by the errata by
'NameStartChar'.

In XML Namespaces 1.0 2nd edition, NCNameStartChar is however still
using 'Letter'. In the 1.1 version of those specs, it has been
replaced by 'NameStartChar'.

Since there is currently no errata for the namespaces 1.0 specs, I
would like to know if 'Letter' has to be considered legal as 'Letter'
has been replaced by 'NameStartChar' by the XML 1.0 erratum?

Regards,


Nicolas Weidmann
