Re: [xml-dev] Should one adopt the tag naming convention of anexisting XML vocabulary or create one's own tag naming convention?

The history of XML from day 1 has been about the convenience of  
programmers or near-programmers, the infamous DePH.

It took marketing to make it about customer needs.  The embedded  
context is in those text nodes that we mostly ignore.


Quoting Greg Hunt <greg@firmansyah.com>:
