True.  They need RDF on their patent records to get a faster 
return. :-)

No opinion is without application.  Anyway, the idea would be 
to walk away from the HTML application language altogether. 
Scrap it.  Leave the legacy to rot.  Get another set of 
generic codes whose owners aren't bound to the agreement 
where a downtranslation target is needed, and take on the 
burden of XML+stylesheets in others.  It would do damage 
to the XSLT to HTML solutions, but oh well.

I'm kidding here.  No one will get rid of kudzu, but it 
makes it evident that some might want to consider alternatives to HTML. 
Dang.  A real use for PDF. (-:

Nope.  Just without HTML.  Kick a leg or two out of the 
claim and see if the suits can hold one to the agreement.

  Hum, I never purchased anything from Sun, they probably
don't care ...

And we thank you for the click.  Please buy a CD.  You can 
be the first to do so.  I will gladly ask MP3 to not use 
any of the monies to defray the costs of infringing on the 
Sun patent.  In retaliation, Eve can copy my MP3s to Napster.

What was that bit in SouthPark about the PooMan?
