   RE: [xml-dev] Subtyping in XML

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Still, the Chinese took pride in the system 
and hung on to it.  The Egyptians didn't.  
Somewhere in there is a hidden coupler. I'm 
curious about cultural events that cause 
forgetfulness.  Some cultures can hang onto 
tools and grudges for amazingly long times; 
whereas others just adapt and let what is 
bygone be gone.

Hoorah for RELAX NG.  What is the cost of that, 
implementing and marketing the datatype plug?

I don't think so, actually.  Ancient conquerers typically didn't want to
impose their language and culture on the conquered: it just paid for
the conquered to learn.  Writing Coptic in Greek letters didn't make it
one bit more intelligible to Greeks, but for Egyptians who weren't scribes
it was a powerful technology.

Exactly what RELAX NG provides.
