   RE: [xml-dev] text, regular expressions

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I read that part.   It comes down to interpretation 
and if what we are interpreting is a myth and that is 
driving our decisions, don't expect predictable or 
reliably repeatable results.  My logic teacher used 
to tell me that most of the problems of miscommunication 
can be solved by learning to choose a better question. 

How does one frame a better question to a myth?

Let's take the blame game over standards, browsers 
and web pages.   Pick a myth and then pick the victim. 
The situation can't be improved until all parties 
ask each other the same questions and agree to the same
answers, but as long as we play Spy Vs Spy, only 
the outcome is predictable: dominant vendor wins.

Myth or truth or both?
