Que bueno. That's part of it. Ok. Now show me how to prove that for even one of the content handlers, I can guarantee reliable performance. What happens if the system dynamically finds components based on the content rating for required reliability? Consider content that can make that request. For example, RealMedia wakes up and tells you that an upgrade is needed, then does it automatically and in my experience, very completely. This is a sea change from the last version, so I think they are listening to the users. Some of the marketing wonks who follow these threads should consider asking their logistics engineers if they have them, how does a markup system contribute to the outermost performance numbers for MTBF? When doing this, one needs to do the Failure Mode Effects Analysis first. Remember, it is a system with lots of layers, each has its own failure modes, and overall these can provide a rating for the complete system. By the way, being able to continue operations in a "degraded mode" as Winer said, is precisely what is needed. Can anyone tell us what Windows is doing when it boots up in SafeMode? What is Safe and what is disabled and how are the choices made? Some of us are old enough to remember CALS and the arguments for why SGML was chosen. The rest of you, do a little digging. This isn't about the browser wars. len xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
