/ Seairth Jacobs <seairth@bbglobex.com> was heard to say:
| Can anyone suggest a good format (or sources to find one) for
| writing the following types of standards:
| 1. XML Standard (possibly including formal DTD and/or Schema definitions)
| 2. XML Processing/Parsing method (like SAX, DOM, etc.)
| 3. XML Subset (specific exclusion of certain XML features)

Most W3C documents related to XML are written in the XML Spec[1]
doctype or some slight variant of it. DocBook[2] is another good
choice, but since I'm actively involved in its development, I might
not be exactly unbiased :-)

| Are there any online discussion services that are suited for this
| particular sort of work?

I find web-based discussion services so tedious to use that I almost
never do.
