   Re: [xml-dev] XML for the Restaurant Industry

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]


XML.org maintains an "XML in Vertical Industries list [1] that you might
find helpful.  Under "Food Services" (the only pertinent choice - no
"Restaurant" choice) there are RecipeML* [2] and a few more.  Not much,
but perhaps something to start with.

Buon Appetito!

Electronic Recipe Transfer (DESSERT)" - YUMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!
