Re: [xml-dev] Wikipedia on XML

Alternatively, we could promote the section under "meanings" of the  
term" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XML#Meanings_of_the_term) to the  
top of the entry & enrich it with some links.  Currently it says:

The term "XML" is used colloquially in the IT and marketing  
communities to describe a variety of technologies, including:

    1. the syntax and rules defined by the W3C XML specification(s);
    2. any vocabulary (markup language) based on the XML  
specification; and
    3. XML technology in general, such as the collection of XML  
languages, parsers, tools and APIs applied to a particular problem  
set, as in "we are using XML for information exchange".

The majority of this article concerns the first meaning. Wikipedia  
contains numerous articles covering many of the specific XML languages  
and technologies. See the XML Category.
