I agree with Betty - I've been seeing more and more integration systems as 
well as publishing systems based on XML, <plug> which is why we some 
new areas to the XML 2002 Conference - EAI/B2Bi to cover  integration stuff, 
and Storing XML to cover CMS, native vs relational databases etc (as well as 
some other new areas for vertical industries). If you're doing interesting stuff 
in these areas, please submit a proposal to talk at XML 2002. More info at 
www.xmlconference.org </plug>
