Re: Where does the term "element" come from?

Iâm pretty sure youâre going to have to do some time in the library. Yâknow, the place with the stacks of ground-up, boiled, pressed trees. The term âelementâ in markup goes back at least as far as GML, and I am guessing that they used a CS term of art at the time. Various journals might have more, and possibly the original coiner of the term in this sense, but I donât know that anyone still on this list was present at the time. ~Chris -- Chris Maden, text nerd <URL: http://crism.maden.org/ > âThe most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.â â H.P.
