Public registry for unprefixed XPointer schemes launched by W3C

Discussion in 'XML' started by Henry S. Thompson, Nov 18, 2005.

  1. W3C is pleased to announce the public launch of the XPointer Schemes Registry:

    http://www.w3.org/2005/04/xpointer-schemes/

    The XPointer Recommendation reserved all simple (unprefixed) XPointer scheme
    names to the W3C, but in the announcement of that Recommendation [1] the W3C
    Director said:

    [W]e expect to bring forward a proposal for discussion in the
    wider community and approval by the W3C membership which will
    enable open, public and well-regulated use of un-prefixed schemes.

    This registry is the realization of that commitment. It allows one to easily
    determine whether or not a name is already registered as a scheme name via
    HTTP, and offers a simple procedure, incorporating Team and public review, for
    registering new scheme names.

    The registry is governed by the following policy:

    http://www.w3.org/2005/04/xpointer-policy.html

    The W3C Team Contact for the registry is Henry S. Thompson <>.
