Subject: Re: OTA Tag name rules


Thanks for your note.  Just from my lurking, it appears Scott Hinkelman has 
competently passed on any lessons from the OTA experience.  We had a very 
specific business objective to meet, while the ebXML teams have a much more 
comprehensive goal.

But since you ask ... keep your sense of humor (or humour if you 
prefer).  Its amazing what you can accomplish if you're having fun and 
don't take yourself too seriously.
