Do a Google search on "WXS W3C", "WXS XML", or "WXS Schema", and you'll get the right answers every time. "WXS" alone works fine at the Cover Pages, XML.com, and xmlhack. I'm well aware of the dangers of plugging random acronyms for recently released specs into general-purpose search engines. That's not exactly a revelation. > It's not worth debating endlessly, but I think calling things by > their name does make it a lot easier for people to know what you are > talking about. And creating names which make it sound like this is the one-and-only is a good way to keep people from considering alternatives, if you can carry off the hoax. -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com
