Heh. I was a HyperCard guy who thought markup was an insanely complex
hassle. The HyTime stuff I'd read while searching generally for
hypermedia looked downright catastrophic, and I thought for about a year
that HTML would go absolutely nowhere - markup just seemed insanely
Then I learned a little better... but still don't go near SGML per se.
And my hypermedia side is saddened but can't help agreeing with Bob
DuCharme's piece at:
As much as I'd like to, I have a really hard time saying XLink matters
right now. Kind of funny given my initial reaction to markup for
hypermedia and my eventual conversion. Oh well.
