RE: [xml-dev] XML has arrived

It seems as though RSS has arrived at the same time as XML :)

Subject: [xml-dev] XML has arrived


We have in the UK a quiz program named "University Challenge" whereby
student teams compete over a number of rounds for a token prize.

The questions are normally fairly technical, such as chemical valencies,
or art and literature, such as identifying classical music.

This week's episode had a question on XML, can't remember verbatim but
something like:
What XML formatted files are used on web sites to provide machine
readable content summaries and are often visuaally marked with an orange

The answer, of course, was RSS.

It was great to hear a question related to a topic that dominates my
professional life, the first time I've seen something like that on
popular television.

Felt I had to share this so sorry if you think it's off-topic.
