Can we all agree that at the very lowest, bone-head, most fundamental level, an implementation must conform to this syntax if it is to be considered XML? (boy do i hope so-- or just kill me now because i've been wasting a lot of time on a mirage...) 2) BizTalk does not conform to that recommendation. 3) Ooops! It failed the first test. end of story. It's like saying - hey we'd like to speak english, but we've got this alphabet that's just a little bit different (although we're not going to document exactly how different) -- hey we've got all these other people using it that don't understand the alphabet's different, and if we get enough of them using it quickly enough, we hope that you all will just go ahead and change the alphabet mmmm--ok?) It's a cheap shot from Microsoft, and I don't understand why, because I know that they have perfectly capable XML people there that know how to do things the right way, that in fact have been trying to do things the right way, and apparently there has been some kind of decision from "up top" to take this inferior, really embarrassing approach anyway, and that is unfortunate :-) lisa xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
