It stands a good chance. People actually check the standardization before going forward. Some also hang back waiting for stable implementations. A lot depends on the value of the information to be marked up. SVG will do well. We will experiment with VML to get a feel for markup in graphics, then move on out with SVG when the timing is right. Considering that using markup for graphics used to be a killing offense, we have come a long ways. len xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
