What exactly do people mean by "API" for XML. A function/method interface? An abstract data structure specification? Both? There is a degree of overlay between the two however, trench warfare experience leads me to prefer abstract data structure over functions/methods. As soon as you create function/method interfaces you are creating a backward compatability problem for yourself. If you want to make wholesale changes you must maintain the "old" functions/methods in order to avoid breaking existing apps. The thing I would like most to see tied down is the ESIS++ (or RAST) for XML so that tools can sensibly be tested against a reference test suite. Regards, sean@digitome@i...
