   RE: [xml-dev] MS thinks HTTP Needs Replacing???

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


Netscape lost because it thought its browser was an 
operating system inside an operating system.  Apple 
realized that hypertext did not require controls 
inside content.  Controls can point in.  HTML 
and href are quite primitive.

The rub there is, what is beyond hypertext?  If hypertext was/is
envisioned to be able to capture all information, what's left over to
worry about?
