This is wonderful! From time to time I have suggested such an engine on
XML-DEV and it is great to see someone as well advanced as this. Do you
plan to make this available? If not, are you able to publish the semantics?

This was very helpful. From your replies, you appear to attach some meaning
to all except the last (which I think we would all agree was a semantic
error). I'd be very interested to know if other Xlink specialists
(including the authors?) take the same view as you.

I agree with this strategy. I have been campaigning for an XLink processor :-)

I have recently met a good fairy which means that I shall be at XML98 for
part of the time (probably Tuesday - Thursday). It would be nice to meet.
