Re: Where is XML going
David, I think we're coming from alternate points of view. You seem to be approaching XML as human-incomprehensible data (the app developer viewpoint) -- I'm approaching it as a human-comprehensible document. There are numerous examples of both, but it's become increasingly common for people to ignore the vast, unimaginable quantity of XML documents that exist as human-comprehensible data. An example would be the plethora of data that exists in aviation repair manuals -- literally, hundreds of millions of pages worth of pure document. There will always be room for server-based transformations et. al., but that space is very well addressed by existing technologies. What is extremely poorly addressed is the document to end user space, and -that's- what needs to be fixed, in my opinion. --->Ben On Sat, 2010-12-04 at 22:15 -0500, David Lee wrote: > TouchÃ© > Good argument > But how does the browser know what the data means well enough to present it. ? > I feel there is a difference of opinion re separation of concerns that is a fundamental rift in agreement in the community > > > Sent from my iPad (excuse the terseness) > David A Lee > email@example.com > > > On Dec 4, 2010, at 10:03 PM, Peter Hunsberger <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: > > > > > On Sat, Dec 4, 2010 at 7:03 PM, David Lee <email@example.com> wrote: > >> > >> In my opinion the server is 'closer to the data' then the browser.
