   The XML Acronym Demystifier

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Could someone please pass me the url for this.  I deleted the original email and would like to take a look at it.
Dear Colleagues,
> >
> > Frustrated with the tantalizing amount of TLA and FLA within the XML and
> > Web Services Acronym Soup (XAS ;-) we started an open-source XML-based
> > project named the "XML Acronym Demystifier" [1].
> >
> > We decided to collect XML and Web Service related acronyms and
> > abbreviations together with their explanation and short introductory
> > texts stating that the thing identified by the acronym is all about.
> > Additionally, every acronym is accompanied with at least a link to more
> > information or directly to the originating spec if possible.

> > The project is strongly based on XML technology since the data source

> > implemented as a XSLT transformation which is parametrized by the values
> > supplied by the Web form.
> > All sources (the XML source, all the transformations) are available

> > We invite all readers of XML-DEV to use the service and also to
> > contribute to the project.
