RE: A milestone in XML
I haven't answered this question because I don't know the answer. Who knows 
how anyone else thinks? Especially a big corporation that's just been 
acquired by an even bigger corporation? Anyway, from my POV, CDF is a dead 
horse. We did some work with it when it first came out, but it seemed 
fairly useless and never went anywhere that I could see. Beyond that, I 
have not got a clue what CDF was supposed to do that anyone wanted. RSS on 
the other hand is quite useful, and lots of people are getting on the RSS 
train, so of course we supported it enthusiastically. That's the big 
picture from where I sit. Dave
