The biggest driving factor behind people working in SGML is the fact that there are clients who want work done. SGML is neither complex nor low-powered, as numerous defence, telcos, legal publishers, stock exchanges, aircraft manufacturers, automotive companies, etc. can attest. Generalisations of the participants such as those above, create friction between the XML and SGML camps and reveal an inate lack of understanding about the relationship between the two. I will thank you to not to categorise me as either a "good XML groupie" or a "garden gnome". -- Regards, Marcus Carr email: mrc@a... ___________________________________________________________________ Allette Systems (Australia) www: http://www.allette.com.au ___________________________________________________________________ "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." - Einstein xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
