	Cool :-))) I'd send it in somewhere but I'm just a standalone guy who
thinks that XML is great stuff ... well at least I'm not a member of W3C so
I'd need a 'sponsoring' organization for submission. What I've been doing
for the past few months is organizing a group of physicians and
technologists into the "OpenHealth Group" which is developing an open source
XML based healthcare system. The basis for this is the XML work I've been
doing for the past couple of years. At some point this org may desire W3C
membership but for the time being it is hard to justify the expense. The HL7
group does get involved in OASIS etc, but the problem is that HL7 XML has
been talked about now for years and it will certainly be several more years
before it is widely implemented (that is once V3.0 is done and out :-) In
the meantime there are lots of very cool things that can be done with XML
and XSLT.
