Boolean Query DTD?
I have a consulting client who is shipping around Boolean queries. The documents are not XML, but they are using XML for data transfer between the search form and the back-end search engine, and in the results listings. We would like to replace their proprietary query language (it looks like AltaVista's + and - system) with XML markup, because it seems cleaner and could be parsed with the rest of the document. I have read all 66 position papers at the QL '98 site <http://www.w3.org/TandS/QL/QL98/pp.html> and think that the proposed languages, such as XQL or XML-Query, are overkill for our needs. Do we have to go the whole query route or is there something lightweight that might handle it for us?
