Re: ebxml challenges...


| The other issue is that the interest for XML documents is not that
| high in the real business world. We are finding that .PDFs are a
| better starting point for purchase-orders and then offer XML/EDI
| as an additional thing.

I agree that the document aspect has not received the attention it
deserves.  In UBL 1.0 we've addressed this by providing a complete
mapping of the UBL documents to the UN Layout Key and associating
all the UBL documents with freely available XSL-FO stylesheets
from Crane SoftWrights that can be used with any conformant XSL-FO
formatter to produce printouts conforming to the UN Layout Key.
The next step is to develop XForms templates to perform a similar
function on the input side.  Anyone interested in this work should
contact the co-chairs of the UBL Human Interface Subcommittee,
G. Ken Holman (gkholman@cranesoftwrights.com) and Fabio Arciniegas
