I watched your conversation on XML-dev. I'm leading the Mozquito
Project and my team is currently planning to develop an IIS
extension and Apache module similar in function as you described.
By doing this, we can process new markup languages in existing
browsers. Currently, we have designed and implemented an XML
grammar called XHTML-FML, which is XML-based HTML 4
(XHTML) with 14 additional Forms Markup Language (FML) tags for
improved web forms and dynamic web pages.
We have extended XHTML so authors do not need to write
features are now part of HTML, making it easier to author and
dynamically generate large forms and dynamic web pages on the
Currently, under http://www.mozquito.org, you can download a
client-side editor that allows you to write and validate XHTML-FML,
and when viewing the file in the browser, the XHTML-FML
document is being automatically transformed into cross-browser
While the editor is targetted to web designer and HTML writers who
wish to develop single, fancy web pages, our next product will be a
server extension. This will allow to transform pure XML into XHTML-
FML via XSL or DSSSL, and then the XHTML-FML is being
results on version 4 browsers.
FML could be also used to edit XML files in the browser. One could
think of a scenario where normally an XML file is being transformed
into plain XHTML, but when someone uses the "administration
mode", the XML files are transformed into XHTML-FML where every
text and component becomes a textarea or form control. One could
then edit the document in the browser, and send the result via
submit back to the server.
So I justed wanted to ask what your plans are and whether we
could possibly work together on this, since there seems to be quite
some overlap between our two projects?
