Re: RE: SGML On The Web

The problem with "SGML on the web" is with the article "the". One could think about "SGML on a web", and work towards it, but the idea SGML/XML can coexist on the same web is a geeky delusion.

Perhaps I should marvel at the "thinking about structure", or perhaps at the grasp thereof, that went into class names such as "fourhundred" and "fifty" and "orangebox". Oh, I get it.
