Lurking what is said about how to resolve colon notation and the proposed XML framework in general, I have the strange feeling that we are re-inventing SGML. Or more precisely an SGML with a static SGML declaration (in fact this is what XML 1.0 is). Is this the “eternal return” phenomena in which people re-discover what was discovered before?
Funny, it all started with the general idea to simplify a too complex SGML. You know, frankly, I am starting to find SGML easier than what XML is becomming :-) :-). Maybe it’s a natural tendency in human beings to make simple things complex. Humm, who knows ….
