Re: [xml-dev] The Allure of Gothic Markup

I gave a talk last week at Balisage <http://balisage.net> on John Ruskin's "The Nature of Gothic" and how it might transform markup (XML and beyond) practice.  The talk and the paper compare and contrast Ruskin, William Morris, and Christopher Alexander's visions of how architecture should function with common SGML, XML, JSON, and Web practice.

Thanks, Simon.  It's interesting to note that in FtanGram, the "schema language" of FtanML, a schema is just a value that compactly encodes a predicate.  The schema "<number gt="5">" is just a representation in the FtanGram language of the FtanSkrit function "{if isNumber($1) then $1 > 5 else false}".  This kind of non-monolithic validation just asks if a certain Ftan value has certain structural or value properties, and as such is not imperialistic.
