XPointer last call issued
03:16, 7 Dec 1999 UTC | Edd Dumbill

The W3C has issued a last call working draft for XPointer, the XML Pointer Language. The closing date for comments is 27 December.

XPointer allows the referencing of document fragments within an XML document.

After co-operation with the XSL working group, the XPointer working group adopted XPath as the base language for addressing parts of a document.

XPointer adds the following functionality to XPath:

  • Address points and ranges as well as nodes
  • Locate information by string matching
  • Use addressing expressions in URI-references as fragment identifiers
