RE: Standards: they're de-jure, they're de-facto, they're de-LOVELY!
> I've never (knowingly) called SAX a 'standard', de facto or de jure. > What *is* it? IMHO, it is a standard in the traditional sense. 1 : a conspicuous object (as a banner) formerly carried at the top of a pole and used to mark a rallying point especially in battle or to serve as an emblem 2 a : a long narrow tapering flag that is personal to an individual or corporation and bears heraldic devices b : the personal flag of the head of a state or of a member of a royal family c : an organization flag carried by a mounted or motorized military unit d : BANNER 3 : something established by authority, custom, or general consent as a model or example : CRITERION 4 : something set up and established by authority as a rule for the measure of quantity, weight, extent, value, or quality 5 a : the fineness and legally fixed weight of the metal used in coins b : the basis of value in a monetary system 6 : a structure built for or serving as a base or support 7 a : a shrub or herb grown with an erect main stem so that it forms or resembles a tree b : a fruit tree grafted on a stock that does not induce dwarfing 8 a : the large odd upper petal of a papilionaceous flower (as the pea) b : one of the three inner usually erect and incurved petals of an iris 9 : a musical composition (as a song) that has become a part of the standard repertoire I particularly like #9 although SAX is more like a good old drinking song.
