   RE: [xml-dev] Two link questions

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Alas, the same thought.  Markup is a retrograde database.
The content is the context.  The link container is a control.  
So much for originality.  Why are these things so easy in 
code and so hard in English?

Glad we aren't doing a round here on resources and representations. ;-)

I thought it was "a retrograde form of a GUI in which controls have been 
dropped into content using content as the GUI"?
(http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200209/msg01271.html --  I liked that
sentence so much that I had pasted it into my quotable quotes file, so
that's why I remembered it.)
