Attributes Versus Elements: The Never-ending Choice

By Sean McGrath, ITworld |  How-to

-- an UBER-tag with an attribute
called "type" that is used to hold tag names. Most annoyingly, the
scheme works too.

So much for the simple relationship between attributes and elements.
Just think, in some parallel universe the world has been conquered by
HTML. In their HTML version 4.0, a new tag was added in 1998
called "tag". It has an attribute "type" that can hold any name you
like: "invoice", "pullquote", etc.... User groups have hailed this
break through in HTML that allows industry vocabularies to be cleanly
added to the HTML tag set. HTML Supersets such as ebHTML and NewsHTML
are taking that world by storm....

I wonder, do they use entities?
