Re: [xml-dev] xml:href, xml:rel and xml:type

 >XML on the web is difficult, so I would say XML has fallen short of 
this goal in at least one respect: it's not a hypermedia format.

It's not an EDI standard either, or a format for mail archives, or a 
format for publishing scientific articles, or sheet music, or browser 
history files, or resumes, or calendars, or museum catalogs, or 
insurance policies, or mapping data. Instead, it's a notation for 
defining all of these. It's a syntax that allows you to layer your own 
vocabulary on top. Hypermedia formats, like all these other things, 
belong in the layer on top.
