But ... to test the water, while I am technically interested I step and ask myself "Why MicroXML?" Is there really such a dearth of full XML processors that MicroXML has value over simply coding to simpler XML by convention ? Noone is making you use the full (and ugly?) breath of XML in your documents - and (IMHO) Unlike SGML, there is a *plethora* of full XML parsers and processors available, yea even in the Browser. So ... partially as devil's advocate, but also to question why put so much effort into a new standard if simply ad-hoc subsetting of the one we have would suffice "Why not just use XML ?" Or for that matter, JSON. What is the value add of a *new* standard. -David
