Re: RE: Data Interoperability ... Why do some XML vocabularie
I agree your example with XSLT is one use case. I don't agree it should be generalized to all uses of XML. I also suggest "Prime App" is misleading in the general case. For XSLT and XHTML it may be a good description. For many other types of XML it is not a good description.

I can send the XSLT document to you and you run it on your XSLT processor. We get the same behavior. We agree perfectly on what the<xsl:for-each> element means and how it should behave.

Again, perfect interoperability. And a third. And so forth. The Prime App allows endless different XSLT transforms to be created, exchanged and executed with perfect understanding/interoperability. > > > /Roger > > > _______________________________________________________________________ > > XML-DEV is a publicly archived, unmoderated list hosted by OASIS > to support XML implementation and development.
