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

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hello Peter,

Your challenge is quite stimulating and I am happy to see some focus on real
stuff and less on politics.

Here is what I am proposing:

Having more than one option is always good because we do not know where the
evolution will lead us what will be the fittest to survive.

You actually have as options:

a) A java only world incarnated with Eclipse and bioeclipse.
b) A potential browser solution (if I understand well the current one is

Option (a) is already taken care of.

Option (b) needs some brain and hands.

Let's see if I can contribute but now I need more info:

a) I assume that a publication needs a way to be encoded. I am proposing
XHTML because its easy to get it interpreted in most browsers. So the
textual information can be encoded into XHTML.

b) For information unit about molecular matters I guess you want to use CML
and a CML interpreter. I noticed a few but JMOL seems to be the best. Am I

c) For math I am puzzled because comments made in this forum lead me to
conclude that mathML is unsatisfactory. So, what to do for math information
units? Waiting for your imput.

d) any other format?

So guess that what I am doing is collecting the datument atoms or
information units required. IN other words do we have the right capabilities
in the browser to correctly interpret/render the different information unit
required. This is the first step for building an intelligent CLAX wrapper
for the different browser environments.
