   RE: [xml-dev] Ted Nelson's "XML is Evil"

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I think it evident that web != (hypermedia | hypertext) and that 
is why what Nelson said in that article isn't as relevant today.

The web started there but progressed beyond those notions.   Hypermedia is a

evolutionary step to a modern GUI-interface over a database and a 
network plus, but texts-As-The-System is too limiting a concept.

o  XML as a transport payload (text with markup)
o  XML as a service payload (markup with state metadata)
o  XML as a presentation application
o  XML as an archival/hydrated format

and so on.  Evil is getting a good workout.
