Re: [xml-dev] what's missing in XML? What's coming?

Which is why I say "rumors".  If S1000D is taking hold, I would expect  
it to be Navair first given a historic record as early adopters with a  
strong IETM community, so that is good news.

I'm told that the guidance doc for 2361 was about eight years in the  
making.  I hear hopeful mutterings about S1000D but the lag time is  
considerable as you say.  It is also organizational.  When the TMs  
cost as much as they do, one would think there are some good  
opportunities here.  It is not much of a  challenge to turn a 40051-C  
doc into a good IETM straight out of the delivered data and some do  

So I am also a bit surprised.  Turns out one of the obstacles is the  
field level folk usually don't have the delivery devices so they  
continue to rely on paper.  Also, they can get their hands on the PDFs  
and as long as the hyperlinking is enabled, they are ok with that.
