I have many techniques for managing meaning of data in XML, all of which are infinitely more expressive than WXS. Why would I even use something as weak as WXS to manage something as multifarious as meaning? I am happy for people to use whatever works for them to manage the semantics of their tags. I just don't want one group's particular preference melded into core XML processing specs. I should think this distinction is a really clear one, but for some reason it does not seem to be getting across. -- Uche Ogbuji Fourthought, Inc. http://uche.ogbuji.net http://4Suite.org http://fourthought.com Tour of 4Suite - http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2002/10/16/py-xml.html Proper XML Output in Python - http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2002/11/13/py-xml.html RSS for Python - http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/webservices/library/ws-p yth11.html Debug XSLT on the fly - http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/x-deb ugxs.html
