sgml to xml parser
The initial (and I hope) the current idea of this list is for 'XML
developers'. This is very widely interpreted and there has been a very high
percentage of top quality contributions. A few recent ones have tended to
be statements of opinions and, although I certainly don't want to stifle
discussion, they don't contribute to the *development* of XML. 

There is still a serious lack of resources in the public arena. Maybe there
are lots of people waiting to announce things as soon as the spec is
'frozen' :-). At present, however, we do not have any/sufficient :
	- test documents
	- tutorials
	- editing tools
	- post-parser applications
	- class libraries for common functions (e.g. entitySubstitution)

Some posters have felt that XML is too rigid (i.e. we should break the
specs), completely  broken, not powerful enough etc. It's not helpful to
elaborate these views here as they don't contribute to the development of XML.

However, as a compromise, if anyone wishes to post such views here,  I
think we can allow them in a WF or valid XML document (self-contained,
please). Use as much markup as you can so that we can test parsers to
destruction :-) In that way we can accumulate a body of XML documents...
