Re: Parents and children (was RFD: comp.text.xml)
I think that we could end this flamewar quite simply. XML is an SGML subset. That's a verifable, mathematical fact. As far as I can tell, Simon St. Laurent has no concrete proposal for how to change that fact and I can't think of any reasonable ones off of the top of my head. We could just throw in a feature to break compliance and if ISO adopts it, we could throw in another, and keep doing so until they gave up. NYAH NYAH! So there! We win! Since there is no proposal, there is nothing to argue about and argumentation is wasted breath. Nevertheless, XML practice is often quite different from SGML practice and there are many questions that apply only to one or the other (especially tools questions). That seems justification enough for separate newsgroups. Where concerns overlap, there is cross posting.
