Pursuant to this, I am charged with collecting a list of XML generating and using apps and evaluating their conformance with http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-xml-19980210. The objective is not to bash any particular vendor, but to create a forum where vendors and the public may determine what XML applications need attention and what ones will sail comfortably and interroperably into the next millineum. Conformance may be judged on these criteria (any probably more that I haven't thought of): Generates well-formed XML. Generates valid XML where a DTD is available. Accepts well-formed/valid XML. Follows the application rules described in the XML spec: Produces a valid document tree when processing valid XML. Produces an empty doc when it observes a fatal error (see http://www.w3.org/TR/1998/REC-xml-19980210#sec-terminology). I would like to set up a validation service for generated XML and a test suite for apps that process XML. Please post any additional or refined criteria to <perl-xml@l...> and <xml-dev@i...> so that we may derive a fair and impartial basis for evaluating and furthering conformance. If the traffic becomes a burden on these lists, I will set up a list at W3C, however, I believe that this review will benefit from the public scrutiny available only on these lists. So, there's the mandate, who wants to help? -- -eric (eric@w...) xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
