[W. Hugh Chatfield I.S.P> > Ted Nelson (although he thinks XML is a mistake > http://www.xml.com/pub/a/w3j/s3.nelson.html) In this (pre-xml) reference, Nelson advocates having the equivalent of markup contained in a separate document rather than inline with the main document. He says that this would constrain the structure of the base document less than inline markup would. It's interesting that the Multivalent approach does just that for annotations and notes: http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~phelps/Multivalent/ Of course, you still have to connect parts of the overlay to their corresponding parts in the base document, which Nelson imagines you would do by counting bytes - the Multivalent approach uses its own document model combined with what they call "Robust Locations" to accomplish this.
