Details

Implement full XLink support in Mozilla. (placeholder)
dependant on bug 59783. also contingent on refactoring of xml content sink,
probably...
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
Depends on: 59783
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla1.2
I just wrote the beginnings of a link manager design at:

http://www.mozilla.org/newlayout/xml/lmdesign.html

It will probably take some time to update...

I removed the dependancy to dynamic XPath. XLink does not depend on XPointer or
XPath. XPointer can augment XLinks, providing ways to point to fragments of
documents, although arguably extended XLinks are nearly useless without XPointer
implementation. Right now we only support the IDLoc short hand fragment identifier.

Also extended XLinks do not depend on content sink refactoring.
No longer depends on: 59783
doesn't look like i'll be doing any xml work anytime soon :( ... reassigning to
heikki for safekeeping.

I'll slate this for mozilla1.2 for now, as the rest of the XLink/XPointer work.

Simple XLink is enough (and nobody uses that anyway).

Can we consider reopening this? I'm not a Firefox dev, but given that XLink is already supported in SVG, it shouldn't be too hard to implement for XML in general, right? Or am I missing something?

It's not easier or harder if it's already supported in SVG. But I don't think it would make sense to expand the support to XML in general (note also that SVG 2 started to deprecate it).
