   RE: [xml-dev] Round Tripping XML via low-end version?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Yes.  On the other hand, I author schemas in PFE, parse them 
in IE, cross check them in Visual Studio.Net and Topologi,
and that works.

The problem, as I see it, is not discrimination against the 
low-cost product or user, but against the integration via 
XML of the content produced.  Again, it should be a basic 
right of the content owner to be able to get the content 
out of the proprietary system into a system-neutral format 
of the owner's choosing or design.  It is not the vendor's 
responsibility, I agree, to enable the design yet also not 
to force the choice.  The fact of the WWW the fact of MS 
ubiquity in the toolsets used there does make supporting 
this basic right an MS responsibility.

Yes, yes, but you don't gotta support the schema __authoring__ capability in
the low end versions, just the ability to use one if it shows up.  That is
more likely how schemas would be used at home and in small businesses
anyway, I would think - someone comes up with a useful schema and lots of
people want to use it.
