Re: Perceived C/B for XML 1.1
From: "Eric van der Vlist" <vdv@d...> > The adoption rate of XML 1.1 could be very low. From what I gather, XML 1.1 is more a medium term project rather than something expected to sweep through like a new broom. When Java moves up to Unicode 3.2, XML can be ready and waiting for it. It is not a bad thing if updated libraries have a year or two to permeate things before they get much use. I expect that many people will add XML 1.1 import to their products fairly quickly, just by inheriting it from the latest versions of parser libraries, but that very few people will move over to generating XML 1.1 in the immediate future. I expect any standards-makers or consortia who adopt XML 1.1 early will get a lot of flack until most major parsers support it. For example, if Microsoft and IBM/Apache parsers support XML 1.1 but Sun, Oracle and Aeldred don't, then adopting XML 1.1 will be seen as being anti-competitive. Cheers Rick Jelliffe
