   RE: [xml-dev] CLAX - Client-side functionality

I suspect it might be worth while looking at a ZIP packaging format for
CLAX. To allow files to be bundled with binary, and to break up the XML
into smaller documents that can be loaded more eagerly/lazily. ODF and MS
have adopted this format, and it makes a deal of sense. (I think SCORM
does too IIRC...) This independent of links and AJAX-ish background

For the Web, you dont want metadata per se taking up room in the early
packets: what you want is informaation that can be used to start
populating the visual page/pane ASAP.

Similarly, adopting the STX streaming version of XSLT rather than real W3C
XSLT might make sense too, so that rendering can start as soon as the
stylesheet and enough data appears. If the idea is to build a new platform
(e.g. in Java) to support distros of domain-specific non-HTML XML browsers
that are not supported well by IDE frameworks or HTML browsers (which is
debatable), we don't need to be constrained to use W3C technology like XSD
or XSLT actually. If we use the same ingrediants as we had 10 years ago,
we will come up with the same cake.
