RE: XHTML 2 Working Group won't be renewed?
We have an Xml content management system. We currently have a customer prospect seeking SGML support. Turns out few vendors are supporting SGML anymore and we never plan to support it. What this means to Xml content management is SGML and HTML gets stored as binary files - there being two kinds of files in our system: Xml and Binary. Whereas, XHTML is stored as Xml and is thus enabled for the full processing capable - including link mining and checking. Whether HTML-5 is the path to a fully Xml compliant XHTML (including namespaces) or whether XHTML-2 is I don't know. Seems like XHTML 1 and 1.1 have established XHTML. I think SGML needs to die out as do its descendants like HTML. The W3C should say in the HTML5 specification that the SGML serialization is deprecated. Perhaps new features do not have an SGML serialization. I really don't think young people are learning SGML and I never plan to learn it. As a small point, perhaps a mime type called text/xhtml needs to be used rather than the longer application/xhtml+xml. As well, I thought the buzz on the street for website builders was to use XHTML transitional. Jim
