Subject Re: [CForms] - No @id generation for <wd:output>
Date Wed, 18 Feb 2004 13:10:26 GMT
Somewhat OT, I think that the current use of the id attribute in the 
Woody widget definition (WD) file is unfortunate. Id attributes are 
supposed to be unique in an XML document according to the standard, and 
as id in WD files rather describe a relative position in a widget 
hierarchy, there are no reason for them to be unique. IMO it would be 
better to use the attribute name "ref" for refering to relative 
positions as in XForms. See also

What about replaceing "id" with "ref" in the WD files when we rename 
Woody to CForms?
