RE: Announcing Developmentor's XML Tutorial

Platform aside, the author(s) did us a 
tremendous favor by creating a sound 
tutorial.  It eases the burden out here 
when a freebie like this comes along, 
so complements again to the authors. 
I particularly like the fact that they 
bothered to do a real history starting 
with Bill Tunnicliffe.  It would have 
been good to have mentioned that lots 
of applications had hyperlinks in them 
prior to HTML including several notable 
SGML apps.  On the other hand, this was 
better reporting than we usually see 
and I can't expect the authors to know 
all the bits the *Experts* know by 
virtue of having lived the history. :-)

I no like:

	We strongly urge that you use Explorer 4.01 or higher."

I will not criticise the choice of technology,
but it's *very* frustrating that promising stuff
is walled behind proprietry tooling

now I'll have to go to an ms box,
a thing I do not love
