   The Browser Is Melting! Long Live the Smart Document!

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It is always noisy when the rules change.

"Some developers and users have welcomed the smart document concept, which was first reported by eWEEK last month. 

Joseph Rovine, a software engineer at eRoom Technology Inc., in Cambridge, Mass., said at the time that these innovations would be a good step forward for Office, but added that it was too early to tell if it would get any traction as an XML development platform. 

These developments will mean Office code can read the schemas and figure out from them how to represent the structured data to the user. "This would give you something like a live Web site where up-to-date info is displayed, but without the Web browser," Rovine said. "

 We're doomed to make nothing more than a surfeit of noise if we cannot square
