- Thread-topic: [xml-dev] Adam Bosworth Article - what does "direct access" mean?
My current thinking and that of many of my colleagues is available for all to peruse at
As for whom to contact with regards to our (Microsoft's) XML processing technologies you can email me directly or post on one of our message boards or newsgroups about XML in the .NET Framework. If you are not one of our customers then I doubt that you care what my opinion or that of my colleagues is about how to process and manipulate XML.

It is appropriate to ask here what, specifically, of XML you intend to keep (and what, specifically, deprecate) in promulgating a syntactic system that does go--or at least facilitate going--far enough (or will you even define yourselves in syntax?) And where do I petition to keep it
broad, and useful, enough that I can process both the structured data of securities trades and the text of the regulations which govern them both with the same general purpose tools?
