You can use a schema language to make sure information about the content is processed before information that is the content. Also, by removing the dependence on syntax you also relax the idea that information may only be one (information about the content) or the other (the content). -- Ken MacLeod ken@b... <http://bitsko.slc.ut.us/> xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
