Re: RELAX NG is now an International Standard
Thanks for the info James. There are some folks at my company that are "gun shy" of using ISO standards due to a "licensing fee" they impose (see following message). What are your thoughts on this? A message from one of my colleagues: > Remember that ISO has tried to impose a licensing fee on use of > their country code standard. Given that sad effort, I would > advise against use of any ISO standard if there was a viable > alternative. If they can do it for country codes, they can > impose licensing fees for use of any of their standards, > e.g., Relax-NG.
