   RE: [xml-dev] Top 10 commercial XML vocabularies?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Because you are talking to the wrong people, probably.  Most folks on this
list are IMHO more likely generally interested in XML and supporting
technologies, rather than working with specific XML dialects.  Folks who
work with the more specific dialects are not likely to be on this list
unless they are truly XML geeks.

Check out http://www.xml.org/xml/registry.jsp for an a listing [incomplete]
of a variety XML dialects [190 listed here].

With so many dialects to choose from, it's hard to pick those linked to any
one business and say it has has major impact, because most business sectors
just are not that pervasive.  Not counting the computer software industry
[where XML is huge], the next most likely candidates are dialects used in
the financial services or news media sectors, and I'm just not that in touch
with those sectors to offer any opinions.

You know, this matches what I am hearing and experiencing - but only one of
these is a business vocabulary! For instance, in my parochial world, I'm
not running into ebXML much, which surprises me.

Why is this?
