Yes, but that's just a piece of corporate software that happens to be deployed in a pizza shop. If that's the criteria for "XML in a pizza shop", then I guess you'd have to call them "players in the e-commerce space" too, since they can accept credit cards...:-) John McFadden (OmniMark) always said that SGML was supposed to be under the covers - if it wasn't, it was a poorly designed system. For the most part, the same can probably be said for XML as well - it's a means to an end. I won't lose sleep if it doesn't get sexier with every passing moment. -- Regards, Marcus Carr email: mrc@a... ___________________________________________________________________ Allette Systems (Australia) www: http://www.allette.com.au ___________________________________________________________________ "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler." - Einstein
