I was worried about: (a) the Web getting a lot harder to learn than it previously was, and (b) a transformation model for style that seemed like massive overkill compared to the annotation approach of CSS. The way things turned out, these costs pretty much only get inflicted on people who have problems difficult enough to make them seem worthwhile. Even though I sometimes wish XLink had worked out, in general I'm pretty happy that "SGML for the Web" wound up "XML for not necessarily the Web." -- Simon St.Laurent http://simonstl.com/
