I can see the enormous interest in having a text-based format for exchanging object-oriented data. But can't this be done with a good object-oriented XML schema language, of the which the current W3C seems to be a very good start? I read Tim's paper on xml.com, and he argues against the use of XML (without an additional syntax) for representing metadata with two arguments, both based on scalability. But if metadata are attached in a separate document, as RDF metadata would presumably be, they could expressed just as concisely (and probably more so) by using an XML instance based on a simple (but extensible) XML schema. The latter would be preferably because am extensible schema language is an important tool in its own right. Matthew xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
