Re: Re: Microsoft XML
if it is XML it is XML. You can make your own set of tags to do what you want it to. For example XSLT is XML and Docbook (what Brett probably used to write his book) XML is XML. They are not interchangeable they have been designed for specific purposes. The statement you site below seems somewhat biased. Microsoft has conformance and then more on top of that... they even just announced w3c compliant schema support to the w3cschema list... but whatever... It sounds like you have a good grasp of what needs to be done.
