Re: Defining XML Best Practices

I am the creator of the XMLPatterns.com site.  All the patterns on it were
written by me.  It has no sponsorship ot endorsments from any organization, it
is just a personal project of mine.

I included any patterns I thought would be useful to the community at large. 
Many of the patterns were inspired by "Structuting XML Documents" by David
Megginson, and "The XML & SGML Cookbook" by Rick Jelliffe.

Although I don't have a lot of time to devote to the site right now (I am
co-founder at a startup), I would love to hear any suggestions or comments
people have about the site, and am open to discussing any aspect of it.  I have
a Yahoo Group set up at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/xmlpatterns if anyone
would want to get into deeper discussions.  This group has never been used or
promoted, but its there if needed.
