XML became a Recommendation in February 1998.  There were Working Drafts 
from late 1996 onwards.

DynaWeb (and DynaText) could accept most XML documents even before XML was 
defined; the EBT parser began accepting full XML sometime in 1997, I believe.

  who had the joyful task of typing up the detailed RFEs for adding XML

  liquidation last week
