Subject: RE: FYI: Article on ebXML and Interoperability

Absolutely right!
I've recently joined this list to find out if and when examples, templates, 
etc. will be available. As the technician responsible for developing 
structured data standards for the UK construction industry through an 
organisation called CITE, my job gets a lot easier once I can get hold of 
some template trading documents.

Can anyone shed any light on when these would be available?
