RE: [xml-dev] Victory has been declared in the schema wars ...

Doesn't that mean it is HTML 1.0 with more stuff?

Gencoding a document or data is like farming kudzu:  it keeps the landscape
from eroding but nothing consumes it.

Ok, I guess as long as they don't claim it to be an XML language.  It is a
pointy-bracket language.  As long as that is the goal, maybe it would be a
better idea to drop the pointy brackets and go back to the curly brackets
with white space, commas and semicolons.  It seems to work well for the
other programmer-friendly languages.

More to the point, HTML5 is not XML. It is not well-formed, and in 
general an HTML5 document cannot be made well-formed without crippling 
it by removing quite a few elements. Therefore XML schema languages 
really don't fit it at all.

Frankly I think this is insane, but it's what the HTML5 folks have told 
me quite clearly.
