   RE: [xml-dev] strange feeling

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

He did contribute to the discussions and his presence at the
conference in Vancouver galvanized a lot of support.  It was obvious
that MS had come to be the white knight of the SGML community.
Sure they had motives and agendas.  We all did and do.  The main
thing was that once there, they stayed the course and continue
to be a good citizen in the sense that once a spec gets some
traction, they do implement it.     Actually, the hardest thing
about dealing with their framework is the almost bewildering number
of ways there are to get similar things done.   They make no
apologies for being client and middleware focused with a relational
backend.  Given the current market, it makes sense.
The ObjectSpaces thing looks awfully intrigueing.

Jean Paoli (MS), was not part of the SGML

I seem to recall that Tim stated somewhere that Jean Paoli didn't actually do any editing of the XML 1.0 Recommendation, despite the claim to the contrary in the document itself.
