   RE: [xml-dev] Interesting mailing list & a rare broadside

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

What is really frightening is how hard and loudly some
pressed for ditching DTDs at the beginning of XML.   All things 
considered, that would have been a horrific mistake.

Don't touch the core.  Treat it like your DNA basic.  
As for the rest, choose wisely including refusing to 
listen where others choose for you and your instincts 
tell you their choices are unwise.  You have to 
own your mistakes, but you will come to know them.

From a distance, given DSDL and all the rest, I think 
XML is progressing splendidly because the XML community 
gets wiser with every passing year and that is remarkable 
for a community of this size.

d) cooperating under the aegis of the ISO DSDL effort to create
   real standarization -- a menu of choices that reflect best 
   practices learned by the actual application
   of these various schema languages.
