RE: James Clark: XML versus the Web

Hi Folks,

Consider this:

    The <a> element is, without a doubt, the most
    important element in HTML. It turns our text
    into hypertext. It is the connective tissue
    of the World Wide Web. [1]

Recap: hyperlinking functionality is important on the Web.

The XML hyperlinking functionality, as specified by XLink and XPointer, is dead. [2]

Can XML truly be a Web technology without hyperlinking functionality?


[1] "HTML5 for Web Designers" by Jeremy Keith, p. 20.

[2] XPointer is dead. What about XLink? http://www.stylusstudio.com/xmldev/200908/post90310.html
