Re: [xml-dev] The year is 2027, and we need to examine archived XMLdocuments from 2007 ...


So, instead of fighting over ODF/OOXML which can survive with or without 
each other, perhaps ISO/W3C/OASIS/IETF etc should focus on a (possibly) 
XML based archive format for documents and data which preserves basic 
layout, links, binary objects (like jpg, avi, etc) as part of the 
format. Open Office and Microsoft can conform to Government requirements 
by having a "Save Archive" option.

All sorts of applications, not just office functions could target the 
archive format for long term storage and searching.


PS This is not a request to return to SGML, although it could once again 
be the starting point.
