   RE: [xml-dev] What is the rule for parsing XML in a namespace inside HTM

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Studying Avalon, this is looking like a better 
option when it becomes a distributable product.  The 
graphics are simple and clean, and the extensibility 
story is precisely what is needed to work with markup 
systems outside the browser cul de sac.  

IE still has to be reinvigorated or Microsoft 
will cede market share needlessly.  Even if HTML 
should be deprecated for light application work 
in favor of XAML (it should), the browser is the 
bay window onto web content for human consumption, 
as you point out, and there is no reason to  
change that just because the web specifications 
are becoming moribund.  I'm glad to read that the 
IE team is back at work.  Hopefully they are 
paying some attention to these threads.

Screen scraping aside, the issue is the 
role(s) of the web browser in the production 
environment.  Just because Visual development 
tools can do some simple functionality doesn't 
mean a user will have them or should have them.

Or even transform it to XAML! :-)
