   Re: [xml-dev] Objectifying XML - JavaScript Extensions for XML (E 4X) -

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Actually IE will possibly have support for E4X in IE7, and Netscape is planning on having E4X support extensively (I can attest to this one personally).

I personally see it of more interest internally - E4X will be used within the Mozilla-based browsers at the XUL level before it makes its way to the web browser pane in general usage. At that level the ability to work with objectified XML makes a great deal more sense, and you have a guarantee of support there that you won't for several years within the web page dev community.

The first problem:

"You can use E4X very easily to call Web services in a browser.
There is an issue though! The only browser that supports E4X so
far is the developer release of Mozilla 1.8."

Not the last.
