Subject: RE: Who blows the whistle on Microsoft? Time to stand up XML was designed to free us from people just like us. It frees you from Microsoft and it frees Microsoft from you. [Dare Obasanjo] Exactly. It is amusing to me that at the time of its inception the impetus for the creation of "SGML for the Web" aka XML was to throw off the shackles of HTML and the notion of one-size-fits-all markup vocabularies. Over time people have gotten this twisted belief that unless an XML technology is rubber stamped by some brahmins in some working group or technical committee then it isn't worthwhile. XML is about freedom not serfdom, the sooner the XML community and the software industry as a whole begin to realize this fundamental truth about XML the better for us all in the long run.
