That's hubris, pure and simple. It also seems strange to me given that perhaps the most innovative feature of HTML was that it did far _less_ than most hypermedia systems attempted. I have to doubt that there's a real benefit to dropping the hypermedia net over everything. We _could_ redefine the key-based connections inside relational databases as hyperlinks, or redefine the tables themselves as information connected by hyperlinks, but I don't know that it's helpful. I was a hypertext/hypermedia person before HTML (on the cards side of the house). While the foundation of my interest in XML is definitely hypermedia, I'd rather not water down the word hypermedia by including "all information, everywhere, hyperlinked." -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com
