Subject: RE: XML Gave A War, But Nobody Came
Message text written by INTERNET:firstname.lastname@example.org > I agree with that decision. While common industry standards can be useful, I believe that setting a global standard is too restrictive and, in fact, goes against the purpose of XML as a metalanguage. XML Gave A War, But Nobody Came (May 29, 2000) http://www.techweb.com/se/directlink.cgi?INW20000529S0046 Asked if they cared about which XML version will win, [nine e-commerce executives at top Internet exchanges and e-businesses] all shook their heads. They will fight to set standards for the structure of XML documents in their respective industries, they said, but not about setting a common, global standard for the language. <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Ok - I see the issue here - isn;t this rather un-clear in the question? We're not trying to do the restrictive stuff - we're trying to create interoperability. Couched that way - I suspect the executives would be more responsive. It's all about presentation! Thanks, DW.
