Is it then the case that the individuals responsible for
all the ML innovation that lead to XML chose W3C
as a means to get industry to listen to and comply to
It seems to me that industry is at least listening at
thid stage, full compliance is still a little way off.
If the main goal of W3C is treaty building, then I'd
say it is still a little way from success, although
it looks probable at this stage that it could acheive
So I agree with Len. The individuals responsible for
XML have at least acheived the objective of getting
an industry consortium, and a much wider community
to listen to and begin implementing their ideas.
W3C is still some way off its objective...

Noted. I wrote a reply that I just sent to the o-file. My advice to
you is to study up on SGML Declarations, and investigate the history
of SGML hypertext applications such as EBT's DynaBook, US Army IADS,
and browser tech SoftQuad licensed. You will discover that many of
features you consider innovations were already implemented prior to
1996. XML is a victory for the markup community in that it proves
by demonstration the principles of markup developed over many
years and much effort. That community is considerably
larger and older than the W3C individuals associated with the
of HTML and XML, and in many cases, are the same individuals.
