Thanks for the update and great to hear that you keep your XML Users Group going after the summer break. I don't think the diminished interest in XML Users Groups or dare I say XML is a Canadian thing since in the Pacific Northwest Region (Washington State, Oregon, British Columbia) the VanX is the only XML User Group still standing. For example, interest in the Seattle XML SIG seems to have fizzled out sometime in 2001 (see http://groups.yahoo.com/group/seattle-xml ) and the Seattle Java XML SIG closed down sometime in 2003 (see http://www.sosnoski.com/jxml ) and interest in the Oregon XML SIG seems to have fizzled out sometime in 2003 (see http://groups.yahoo.com/group/oregonXML ). - Gerald _______________________________________________________________ Vancouver XML Developers Association (VanX) - http://vanx.org
