RE: [SML] Whether to support Attribute or not?

I'm pretty > sure that you couldn't write a useful XSLT stylesheet without using attributes .... Now this is the kind of thing I find confusing. Don is saying the SML is entirely different from XML, and is designed to solve a different set of problems. Why is it that it's never mentioned except in the context of XML, or it's tools? Again, if SML is designed solely to remove the "complexity" from XML, then I think it is entirely misguided... there is little ground in performance, or hardware restrictions to justify it, and for data interchange, where some parts of XML *do* complicate things, application conventions would appear to be more than sufficient... and at far less cost that bifurcating the XML community just as we're really starting to see interoperability between tools. Sorry, but I still haven't seen a convincing rationale for SML... xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
