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

If PIs are not available, this will likely eliminate MicroXML as a
markup language for composition intensive applications where
content-tagged structures such as Notes, Cautions and Warnings must by
specification be bound to the same page.  IOW, it and any applications
using it are pretty much shut out of the mil-technical manual business
because this kind of information is out-of-band and often denoted by

For example:

<?pub _newline?>
<?pub _newpage?>

Some rather large organizations would have to rewrite applications and
convert large datasets.  For those organizations, the decision to remain
with XML is made for them.

Not a problem, I think, simply advisory.  If XSL-FOs, etc., are being
deprecated, MicroXML is low on the list of challenges to be faced as W3C
specifications become more insular with regard to their application
domains or in plain English, not all information of strategic importance
is on the web nor will it be.
