Same goes for XML. What I mean is that plan text is not a subset of SGML or XML. If XML is the new ASCII wouldn't it be great if it was backwardly compatible with the existing ASCII? To be concrete. I think it makes a lot of sense to allow a plain text document to parse and emerge at the far end of an XML processor as a single xml:text node consisting of PCDATA. >From a software development perspective this appeals to be. I make text processing tools such as, say, XML-aware search tools, yet know that I can use em to process plain text without any code changes. regards, <Sean uri="http://www.digitome.com/sean.html"> Developers Day co-Chair WWW9, April 2000, Amsterdam <uri>http://www.www9.org</uri> </Sean> xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
