FormatData (http://www.formatdata.com) announces:

The Document Encoding and Structuring Specification for Electronic Recipe
(DESSERT) version 0.2

DESSERT is an XML schema for the rich representation of recipe documents.
About two years ago we saw the need for a standard way for users to retrieve
recipes from the Web.  About that time, XML came into being -- it was
obvious that XML would be the basis for this format.

DESSERT has grown into a format that allows from very simple to very
detailed markup of recipes and menus (a menu is group of recipes, as for a
multi-course meal).  It is simple enough for the posting of basic recipes by
amateurs, and rich enough to satisfy the needs of traditional print
publishers.  The separation of content and style is stressed in the design
of DESSERT -- there are no appearance-specific tags, yet there are many
"hooks" to act as stylesheet language selectors.

FormatData is looking to the XML community for review and comments on the
DESSERT DTD in it's current form.  Any and all experience the community has
to bring to bear on this fledgling project would be helpful.  FormatData
plans to submit DESSERT to a body such as XML.ORG for exposure to the wider
recipe publishing community where it can be developed further.

Right now, having others check the DTD against various XML processing
environments for validation of the code would be valuable.  You can D/L the
DTD from ftp://ftp.mindspring.com/users/jsaiya

Editing software and viewers are in the works.
