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

That may be where the understanding has to be grown:  the data is in the
markup, they aren't in the XML implementation.  The fact is as said
elsewhere, XML Is Not A Hypermedia Language.  It is barely a language at

MicroXML is less.  Let the What Is Is quibbling begin.

Yes exactly, the experience shows that links don't need to be (and
probably shouldn't be) implemented in the underlying generic markup
(SGML or XML) but can be dealt with effectively by application specific
markup (html href and src attributes).

The one recent attempt to put linking into the generic markup (xlink)
failed because the application specific markup was more convenient and
more appropriate for any application that needed linking.

Somehow you are reading the same history differently, but I'm not sure
