Because you would have to add the couple
of hundred people on the working group
list as well which included Dr. Goldfarb.
Or you have to talk about the person who
started the SGML On the Web movement,
Yuri Rubinsky. Or you have to choose
the half-dozen or so engineers who
built pre-XML hypertext systems that
had the features of XML by subsetting
SGML into the practical features.
If you had to pick one person who did
the most to influence the design which
subsets SGML, it would be James Clark.
Lots of successes so lots of credit to

According to the XML 1.0 spec, the following were the original working group
Jon Bosak, Sun (Chair)

Tim Bray, Textuality and Netscape (XML Co-editor)
Jean Paoli, Microsoft (XML Co-editor)
C. M. Sperberg-McQueen, U. of Ill. (XML Co-editor)

I don't see Charles Goldfarb on that list.
How about instead of trying to pick one of these folks to aggrandize with
the title of "Father of XML", we give credit to all of these folks for
bringing us XML. :-)
