"The resource" as a monolithic being disappears. That lets us give up on the notion of consistent (URI+time->result) expectations that Jeff seems to be picking on, and get on with our work. With any luck, this approach might mean less philosophical "bleeding from the brain" (as Tim so cheerfully described it on www-tag) and more focus on how things work in particular - and diverse - systems.  - http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200301/msg00664.html -- Simon St.Laurent Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets Errors, errors, all fall down! http://simonstl.com -- http://monasticxml.org
