RE: dtds, schemas, xhtml, and multimedia technologies
Correct me if I have this story wrong. As I recall from the History Channel, it was Edison who was pushing DC. He fired an employee, Nikola Tesla, who was championing AC (actually invented it). Tesla went to Westinghouse and I think it was Westinghouse who made AC a working proposition. It was discovered in implementation that DC simply didn't scale and that AC could be pushed down the lines with fewer plants at lower costs. Implementation proved the point. len From: Andrew Dubinsky [mailto:andy@e...] >the fact that my wall outlet provides 110V at 60Hz. >that's a standard. that my bicycle wheels are 700mm. Just FYI, a tiny little company called General Electric created that standard at the behest of an employee named Thomas Edison. GE choose AC and pushed that. After the AC / DC argument was won, it became a standard. I have noticed that industry standardization and official standards are easily confused. Often companies need a standardized product more than an Official Seal of Approval (sic).
