Re:  Where is XML going


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.
