Given that I consistently incinerate press releases that use phrases like that, I'm not inclined to see that language infiltrate supposedly technical discussion. So far as I can tell, XML itself is about information and communication, not business. It certainly has business applications in whatever sense you choose to use the word, but I see no reason to use "business" with its multiple connotations when there are alternatives that are both more accurate and more inclusive. XML 1.1 in particular seems to value inclusion... ------------- 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
