RE: ubiquitous XML?
Doesn't that present a problem of not having a language to define the schema language in? At the top of XML is still SGML. There is an SGML Declaration which fixes the syntax. Then there is an SGML DTD to fix the schema:Schema *vocabulary* (aka, the schema application language). So how does the DTD go away altogether without inventing a lot of new and potentially more destabilizing technology to replace it in its formal definitional role for XML? There is "dead wood" then there is the hearth. Len Bullard Intergraph Public Safety clbullar@i... http://www.mp3.com/LenBullard Ekam sat.h, Vipraah bahudhaa vadanti. Daamyata. Datta.

Some things that prove to be way off track may need to get axed or completely redesigned. A deprecation strategy is essential otherwise the burden of carrying all the dead wood will bury us. Dead wood really does stifle innovation.
