RE: [xml-dev] RE: Markup Combinators -- A Functional Approach to XML

Hi Norm,

> which Roger's illustration leads me to suspect neither he nor S.P. Jones does [know anything about financial contracts]

It is certainly true in my case. 

Simon Peyton-Jones is an authority of considerable repute on functional languages. 

Undoubtedly I did a poor job of expressing in markup concepts (i.e., markup combinators) the functional language concepts (i.e., combinators) that Simon Peyton-Jones applies to financial engineering.

Norm, I hope that you will read Simon Peyton-Jones article, "How to write a financial contract" [1]. I would be very interested in hearing your thoughts on it (perhaps others would as well).
