   Re: [xml-dev] ISO turns evil?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

i think if you read the messages carefully this shouldn't really affect

the message seems to say that if you want include the codes in a
commercial product you have to pay

if you want to advise your customers about where they can download the
codes for use, then noone pays

a nuisance, but it would affect say oracle who wants to value add their
product with the codes, but not me because i'll just show my clients how
to download the codes.
