RE: [xml-dev] Evaluation Criteria for Markup Languages

Yes, John, we took that work into account.  We even looked at the work of the Universal Postal Union, which, while fascinating in its own right, was of little help.

Have you looked at OASIS XNAL 2.0
<http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/ciq/ciq.html> for the name and address parts?  It should be powerful enough for anyone.
