   ANN: xml-hypertext mailing list

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Conversations about XML and hypertext have been scattered for a long
time.  The xlxp-dev list disappeared, www-xml-linking-comments is
primarily a comments list for the XLink and XPointer specifications, and
xml-dev, xsl-list, www-tag, and www-html all have other projects on
which they need to focus.  The RDF and Topic Maps communities are
definitely involved in hypertext and XML, but also have other priorities
and applications.

Although hypertext is far from a dominant application of XML, there
still seems to be plenty of interest in the subject.  The Hypertext Town
Hall at XML 2002 was both thought-provoking and well-attended
(especially for a night session up against a large Microsoft Office
demo, a Topic Maps Town Hall, and an XML and Databases Town Hall).  

Participants in both the Town Hall and various recent discussions
(notably XLink/HLink) clearly have strong opinions and visions for what
they'd like to see XML doing for hypertext and how they would like that
to work.  While the XLink Working Group may have ended at the close of
last year, interest in linking continues.  I hope that the recent
publication of Micah Dubinko's SkunkLink and my own VELLUM will
encourage further discussion of these issues and perhaps let us expand
the reach of XML for hypertext.

The xml-hypertext@xmlhack.com list is designed to bring these many
discussions together into a forum that focuses more squarely on
hypertext. xml-hypertext is an unmoderated list, though only subscribers
may post.  

The archives are public:
