RE: [xml-dev] Yahoo! Tech article on injunction against MS Word

I haven't seen the essential claims but even IADS had made that separation
before i4i.  If it is a claim on external indexing from the stylesheet,
Mentor Context had that in the 80s.

We really need to find a copy of the SGML systems still extant.  One gets
tired of the patent disputes.  We depend too much on the web for resources
and forget the design history of our technology predates the web.

It looks like a rather bogus patent; it appears that they claim to
have invented a method for separating metadata from data using
indirect addressing....

community. Apparently Judge Leonard Davis, hearing a patent dispute U.S.
District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, has issued an injunction
ordering Microsoft to stop selling Word in its current form in the U.S. The
case is "i4i Limited Partnership v. Microsoft Corporation" and it was filed
in March, 2007. i4i asserts that Word's ability to generate XML violates one
or more of its patents.
