(It shouldn't, but yet when XML added namespacing it did so in a way that was incompatible with XML itself (see the ":" and the horrible set of APIs in the DOM we ended up with as a result). And when XHTML came along it used a namespace whereas HTML did not (we later fixed that).) -- https://annevankesteren.nl/
