Re: Where does the term "element" come from?
I am going to guess that since GML got it's Ideas from GCA GenCode in the early to mid 60's, which eventually lead to the formation of the SGML group. that the Graphics industry would use Element in a lot of area's. Still trying to find early specs from that time period. But will probably some dead tree searching to find that time period of info. Element did exist in the Original GML timeframe of the late 60's.
