i appreciate that w3c and the draft's authors have provided a forum to which
one can direct questions about the latest working draft.

there follow several postings which pose questions. i have endeavored to
determine the answers by reading the document and by posting questions to
xml-dev, but (in particular with regard to issues I through IV) have not yet
arrived at answers sufficient to permit me to implement conforming support in
an xml processor.

there are five requests for further information. i am posting them in separate messages.

  I please specify the extent of the prefix binding as well as the scope.
 II please establish a method to bind a prefix which covers external dtd subsets.
III please provide examples which describe processing in the presence of entities.
 IV please specify the precedence rules for attribute "specification".
  V please explain why namespace partitions are necessary.

nb. my cross-posting to xml-dev comprises this message only.

thanks, bye for now,
