RE: XML in O2K (was "XML in .NET")
Some of the technical challenges they faced where : - how to deal with overlapping style runs. - had to support loading irregular user written html anyway, so why force it to be xml. - slow was an issue too I think, but not a major issue. -----Original Message----- From: Bullard, Claude L (Len) [mailto:clbullar@i...] Sent: Monday, July 31, 2000 11:53 AM To: DuCharme, Robert; xml-dev@l... Subject: RE: XML in O2K (was "XML in .NET") They probably screwed up, Bob. I don't mean they didn't know it wasn't conformant XML, but that not making that so was "screwing up". Anyone else here ever have to go down to the coding staff to hold a "come to the light" meeting over implementing XML? "THAT WILL BE TOO SLOW!!!" Sound familiar? "The speed of a local application is insignificant to the power of the Forc... no... ahh... to the increased efficiency of the network of applications. Ok... (HHHH!)" Gates is too short to wear the uniform but the sound effects might work and he won't scare his kids at night. How many coders does one need to screw up? 0 (compile a lot of team written code) How many marketeers can fix a screw up? 0 (code can't be fixed in the press) How many XML coders can fix bad XML? All of them (that is what Draconian means) Len http://fly.hiwaay.net/~cbullard/lensongs.ram Ekam sat.h, Vipraah bahudhaa vadanti. Daamyata. Datta.

Of course, this is what marketing people are paid to do.
