A long time ago I thought we were discussing the value or lack thereof
of lists of numbers and letters like:
1125 18432'23'43"7"-8 3-5+7 -3+6+2+6 8+3+6:T;+2+4:*T;+3+6+3-6:FF;
I'm not sure what you're talking about.
My point is that not using XML when you claim to be creating XML has
real costs that demand examination of whether using XML in the first
place is reasonable. InkML appears to my eye to flunk this test with
Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets
Errors, errors, all fall down!
