Cool! We should also not forget another relatively behind-the-scenes XML/RDF application (even if the details are a little hokey). Netscape's "What's Related" application is massively deployed on thousands of desktops; when punters click on the whats-related widget in recent copies of Navigator, it makes a simple HTTP query to their metadata server which returns a chunk of XML-shaped text. For example see http://www-rl.netscape.com/wtgn?www.xmlnews.org The Netscape folks had plenty of stick on the RDF-DEV list for various problems with the actual file format used (see notes at ) but looking beyond that, it's still rather cool. Also next to invisible despite the presumably vast amounts of XMLish data flowing between www-rl.netscape.com and desktop browsers.
