Obviously you haven't taken a look at XAML beyond noticing that it an XML-based markup language that does widgets. It is ASP.NET for the the desktop. It is amazing for one to claim that HTML is being replaced here unless you are claiming that HTML is an appropriate mechanism for building client applications. Then again, Tim Bray keeps claiming as much so that may actually be your argument as ludicrous as it may sound. As Len has already pointed out, it is interesting to note that when the Mozilla folks come up with XUL it is innovative use of XML but when Microsoft does something similar it is "Replace & Defend" or whatever is the new anti-Microsoft buzzphrase. -- PITHY WORDS OF WISDOM To err is human, to forgive is against department policy.
