   RE: [xml-dev] Relax NG Projects

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Ok by me.  Fewer competitors in my world.  I like it. ;-)

We could do what Erik Naggum wanted and that 
would make several posters happy:  return 
to the one true information pure system:  LISP. 
Kill the syntax, namespace, RDF and schema 
bogeyman with one fast cleave.  Now that's 80/20 
at work.

Of course all those XML books become door stops, 
all our luminaries become nobodies, and most of 
our existing code becomes bit-bucket fodder.

Alternatives for appropriate applications.  If 
he teaches DTD first, then RNG, then Schematron, then XSD, 
that would seem like a nicely graded learning curve.

<ot>Because the world believes Americans don't

German victory today at the World Cup, we are 
going out tonight to hold soccer riots and 
trash german restaurants; but only after we 
eat dinner there.  Americans don't riot on 
empty stomachs.  Congratulations to the 
German Soccer Team (boo to the official 
who didn't see the palmed goal).</ot>

Right.  And they should also be taught the value of all-out business 
battles, how to follow crowds unthinkingly, and the value of using whatever 
happens to be handed to them at the time.

I applaud David for teaching students a schema form which might encourage 
them to focus on the basics of information structure development before 
throwing them into an approach which offers a deluge of features manageable 
primarily through tools which separate them from the information.

Teaching DOM without teaching SAX seems infinitely more appropriate by
