RE: Is XLink Dead? Apparently Not

hytime xml xlink 2005
So XLinks aren't dead.  Like watching the TAG discussions 
they are yet again trying to sort out 'thingness' of 
elements, and again, the usefulness of architectural forms 
is apparent, it seems we never get around the 
embarassing fact that HyTime or Davenport had it right as far as 
the features we would need to sort out the mess that 
is modern hypertext.  Even with all the work on convincing 
people to use http URIs, more and more groups are minting 
URNs as we speak.

The history of the Web is a history of big leaps backward 
to go forward.  Worse IS better until something worse comes 


From: Rick Jelliffe [mailto:ricko@a...]

Our new product, Schema Management Tool[1], uses XLink extensively
under the hood.  (Or, at least, the PageSeeder[2] collaborative environment
that the Schema Management Tool is based on uses XLink extensively under
the hood.)

The XLinks are not complicated (no ranges, AFAIK) but are multiway.
All annotation threads, issues tracking, and references to attached data is
done using XLink.
