I consider this to be one of the two major stumbling block for SML as well. Just thinking about the discussion on whether to include attribute or not gives me headaches. >Further complicating picture was serious concern by some, >again including me, about "splitting XML".

Speaking only >for myself, this was the blood-in-the-water issue. This is the other major stumbling block. Ignorant marketeers reasoning "SML is XML so we are supporting XML! Let's put that on the box." I have no answer for this sort of thing happenning other than a firing squad. Best, Don Park - mailto:donpark@d...
