RE: [xml-dev] "Introducing MicroXML, Part 1: Explore the basicprinciples of MicroXML"


Layers are outside of my expertise, but I gather from wikipedia
that there is a difference between the OSI 7 layer model and the TCP/IP model.

Maybe it is not appropriate to talk about the web in terms of the 7 layer model?

Anyway, maybe someone more familiar with the models could comment.  Especially
if that is the crux of the issue for you, that would be great to resolve.
