   RE: [xml-dev] Co-operating with Architectural Forms

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

>>>Can someone please explain what, exactly, are the
operative esthetic values that cause the AF solution to
be perceived as ugly?  I simply don't see it, and I've
never seen it.

Well, like HyTime and ISO 8879 itself, AFs were presented to the world in
horrible English (combining a poorly drafted statute with a needlessly
convoluted academic paper) in a vocabulary based largely on tertiary
meanings and backward senses of words. But other than that, like HyTime and
SGML, they're cool.
