I'm afraid that makes it more difficult to understand or appreciate your arguments. To summarize mine, since your summary is so remarkably off: 1) You claim that the use of XML is unimportant, which has irony given your employer's consistent claims that XML is a crucial component of what they're doing. 2) I've never claimed that Joe's piece is ground breaking - I described it as "a lot like what "SGML for the Web" sounded like to me in 1997, but never was" when I first introduced it. It's nice to see pieces that suggest the original vision might have had merit. 3) Web Services? Sure. You got me on that one. Worthless is generous. Dangerous distraction is a better way to put it. ------------- Simon St.Laurent - SSL is my TLA http://simonstl.com may be my URI http://monasticxml.org may be my ascetic URI urn:oid:220.127.116.11.4.1.6320 is another possibility altogether
