Type(s): Issue

Subject Identifiers (1)

Internal Occurrences (5)

  • Description
    • Is whitespace allowed in the xlink:href attribute? If it is allowed, how is it interpreted? If it is not allowed, what action is taken when it is found?
  • Opinion
    • No, raise error. This is XML, anyway, so strictness is ok. - Scope: Robert Barta
    • Spaces within a URL are disallowed, so strings are simply not URLs of they contain them. All spaces should be escaped (a '%20'). - Scope: Murray Altheim
    • yes its allowed. if it doesnt validly ref something then tough luck. - Scope: Graham Moore
  • Resolution
    • Whitespace is forbidden in URIs unless it is escaped.
