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.
