Description Olivier Thereaux 2007-08-07 05:24:22 UTC
Among the checks that DTDs can't perform, veryfying the syntax of URIs for attributes with value type URI would be welcome.

This is a subset of Bug 69.
Comment 1 Olivier Thereaux 2007-08-07 05:26:31 UTC
A brick-by-brick explanation of how this could be done is at:

1) find of write a perl parser/checker for a URI string
2) list all the elements/attribute pairs for URI type
3) include in the validator
Comment 2 Frank Ellermann 2007-10-20 14:06:37 UTC
