| Hmmm... I am not a big specialist in HyTime and facets. What you say
| is perhaps correct.
It wasn't. The facet value doesn't have to be a topic; I misread the
DTD. It does, however, have to be an SGML NAME.
| However, back five years ago I was using facets in the following way
| (upon consulting with people who knew...):
| <facet type="search-order">
| <fvalue type="shape" href="leading-circle" facetval="0"/>
| <fvalue type="usage" href="dingbat" facetval="1"/>
| <fvalue type="elements" href="flower" facetval="2"/>
This is incorrect, since 0, 1, and 2 aren't valid NAME values.
See 5.5.2 in ISO 13250:2003.
| Yes, but agree that number "1" is a weird resource for a topic
| "dingbat" to be occurred in.
If that were what an occurrence meant I would agree, but it's not. An
information resource is an occurrence of a topic if it is deemed to be
*relevant* to the topic. That's not the same.
| Note that I am not disagreeing (in the end I was one of the first to
| be growled at for using occurrences in this matter), but rather
| pointing out the old issue.
In that case, perhaps we should let sleeping issues lie, and not waste
electrons on them. :)
