   Re: [xml-dev] Out of topic or out of interest?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I know I can be one of the worst offenders, but Eric's quite right about
the recent difficulty in finding angle brackets here.  We might do well
to focus on angle brackets and how best to use them for a while. There's
still plenty of work to do in "hardcore XML", whatever happens to the
layers above it.

I don't think we need to create a different list for XML development
discussion, but it might be nice to see lists for things like "Web
Services" that aren't just how to implement/develop/use SOAP (or REST,
for that matter) et al.  That's a separate issue, I guess.
