They may also think it is easier to get going with the Deep Pockets behind the recent standards. Then they could always go for HTML browsers and XML later, citing the original agreements as argument. This assumes they really have plans for enforcing the patent, not only get PR and trick their stock to rise. I suspect they will have a hard time getting much out of this patent. Or at least, I hope so. Shame on them for applying for the patent in the first place. -- Terje <terje@i...> | Media Design in*Progress Software for Mac Web Professionals at <http://www.in-progress.com> Take advantage of XML with Emile, the first XML editor for Mac! xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
