Re: [xml-dev] Status of MicroXML?

Personal opinions here - and no relation to my namesake in Thailand.

Pete, what more is required?  Isn't it already written up?   As a true
subset, it requires nothing from the XML standard itself -- just a
definition.  Which James supplied as a complete grammar here:

problems without requiring any perturbation of the standard itself:

Should be harmless, I'd think, to efforts to improve HTML, and to
those to improve the base XML spec, catalogued by Liam in other posts

"MicroXML" simply is a conformant, "Just Say No" approach to some
complex stuff, which will fit a lot of use cases, granting that there
are others.  What I like best about it is that it obeys the DPH rule,
ambient in XML's early development, and increasingly overlooked, later
on.  DPH: towards the end of this blog entry:
