RE: Father of XML?
Because you would have to add the couple of hundred people on the working group list as well which included Dr. Goldfarb. Or you have to talk about the person who started the SGML On the Web movement, Yuri Rubinsky. Or you have to choose the half-dozen or so engineers who built pre-XML hypertext systems that had the features of XML by subsetting SGML into the practical features. If you had to pick one person who did the most to influence the design which subsets SGML, it would be James Clark. Lots of successes so lots of credit to go round.

Dayadhvam.h -----Original Message----- From: Michael Brennan [mailto:Michael_Brennan@a...] According to the XML 1.0 spec, the following were the original working group members: Jon Bosak, Sun (Chair) James Clark (Technical Lead) Tim Bray, Textuality and Netscape (XML Co-editor) Jean Paoli, Microsoft (XML Co-editor) C. M. Sperberg-McQueen, U. of Ill. (XML Co-editor) Dan Connolly, W3C (W3C Liaison) Paula Angerstein, Texcel Steve DeRose, INSO Dave Hollander, HP Eliot Kimber, ISOGEN Eve Maler, ArborText Tom Magliery, NCSA Murray Maloney, SoftQuad, Grif SA, Muzmo and Veo Systems MURATA Makoto (FAMILY Given), Fuji Xerox Information Systems Joel Nava, Adobe Conleth O'Connell, Vignette Peter Sharpe, SoftQuad John Tigue, DataChannel I don't see Charles Goldfarb on that list. How about instead of trying to pick one of these folks to aggrandize with the title of "Father of XML", we give credit to all of these folks for bringing us XML. :-)
