RE: Who thought up term XML?
As with IP, it is impossible to protect that which is not secured with a true history. On the other hand, those who know, know Doc and understand the true history. I find it ironic that Microsoft protects that better than others. True story: I was at a gig last Wednesday when a young fellow at the bar introduced himself as 'one of the people who wrote the code for Mosaic'. I felt a bit sorry for him as he had inadvertently stumbled into the one person in Huntsville who wouldn't be terribly impressed by that but thinking I was just the guitar player, it didn't matter to him which is ok. He didn't know and it isn't important. Then he told me about Von Braun and his team coming here in 1941 to help us fight the Germans. That isn't ok. A university grad can't be that clueless or the degree and thereby the university are. It isn't important if we are heroes or winners; it is important that we are fair witnesses. The rest is just stuff. len From: Ken North [mailto:kennorth@s...] Jelks Cabaniss wrote: >> But this is interesting: Votes Acronym Full Name 5 XML Extensible Markup Language XML was derived from SGML, which was Generalized Markup Language before it became a standard. The term "markup" and the acronym GML were chosen deliberately to fit the initials of the co-developers (Charles Goldfarb, Ed Mosher, Ray Lorie). Considering Charles Goldfarb's contribution, it's rather ironic the G was dropped from subsequent names such as HTML and XML.
