Title: RE: almost four years ago....
Nope. The vendors who bought it did.
not a miracle. It was the selling
SGML to those who didn't like SGML

privatize the ownership of it.
Doesn't Do Anything. That is rule
1. Rule number 2 is that to do
anything with XML, you need a domain
exists, something to mark up. It needs
universes, no new domains,
information you put your NamespaceURI
