RE: ConciseXML rationale

RE:  ConciseXML rationale
Somewhat like fixing a dog?

I'd say your chances of getting that liked by the 
standards groups are about as good as getting the 
dog to like being fixed.

What you have is an SGML language minus the required 
declaration.  XML doesn't allow what you are doing, 
basically, because it doesn't allow an alternative 
SGML Declaration.  That was, errr, the main point 
for XML: getting different jobs done by the same 
means minus all the optional features of SGML.  
Programmers and programs aren't special citizens in 
that world.  XML purism doesn't enter into that.

Sell it; that might succeed but not by the standards 
route.  You'll have to market this the old fashioned 
way: one dog at a time.


From: Mike Plusch [mailto:mplusch@c...]

Clarity of expression is critical form understanding code.

Instead, we decided to "fix" XML with ConciseXML.
We knew the XML purists would hate us at first, but
that was worth the risk because the majority of the
world just wants to get their job done.
