   RE: [xml-dev] What is "the Web"

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

What works works.  What I understand better 
now is the useful boundary of the abstraction. 
It tells me when to stop asking questions or 
expecting useful answers.

But I am just as paranoid as Bray about what 
happens if the syntax anchor is pulled out. 
The utility of that is undeniable.  For my 
money, when the syntax goes away, it quits 
being XML, the point being, the infoset 
abstraction does not shrink the space of 
needed processing resources as well as the 
syntax does.

Rather than down that path/rathole, I'd be happy to declare concensus on
your previous statement about "all things representable".  Works for me.
