RE: [xml-dev] [FOSI] was RE: [xml-dev] XML has arrived

Can't.  I need the job even if the pain is enormous.  But thanks anyway,
Betty.  I am also stunned at the technologies that are still being used for
IETMs, but they paid a lot for them so I guess they will use them until they
croak.   Someone somewhere must be working on a true next generation IETM.
I wish I were.  I have ideas. Of course....

FOSI, XML et al:  when a greased pig is let loose, no man is its master. :-)

CALS and JCALS the programs that never die! No matter how hard you
try to STOMP them into submission they keep resurfacing their ugly
heads! I have recently been dealing with FOSI and JCALS (Datalogic)
It was a nightmare 12 years ago and it is still a nightmare but
even more so because there isn't anyone left to understand the issues.

Len - I hope when you heard the term FOSI you ran screaming and running
      from the room as fast as your feet could carry you!


PS. For those who are wondering what a FOSI is - I am imagine there are
    quite a few - FOSI = Formatting Output Specification Instance.  It
    was a Department of Defense specification to provide printing
    capability for SGML.
