RE: "Introducing MicroXML, Part 1: Explore the basic principle
That may be where the understanding has to be grown: the data is in the markup, they aren't in the XML implementation. The fact is as said elsewhere, XML Is Not A Hypermedia Language. It is barely a language at all. MicroXML is less. Let the What Is Is quibbling begin. len -----Original Message----- From: David Carlisle [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Tuesday, July 03, 2012 11:36 AM To: Rushforth, Peter Cc: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: "Introducing MicroXML, Part 1: Explore the basic principles of MicroXML" On 03/07/2012 17:27, Rushforth, Peter wrote: > HTML has had links implemented for more than a couple of decades, we > should respect that experience. Yes exactly, the experience shows that links don't need to be (and probably shouldn't be) implemented in the underlying generic markup (SGML or XML) but can be dealt with effectively by application specific markup (html href and src attributes). The one recent attempt to put linking into the generic markup (xlink) failed because the application specific markup was more convenient and more appropriate for any application that needed linking. Somehow you are reading the same history differently, but I'm not sure why?
