Re: [xml-dev] Imbue XML instances with semantics

Possibly "incorrect" given it is a first encounter but semantics none the less. Just as Egyptian hieroglyphics were "translated" in the 18th century, although those translations are thought today to be incorrect. Being incorrect isn't the same thing as having "no semantics."

Well, yes, it turned out that hieroglyphs had semantics, and nobody doubts that Linear A has semantics too.  The Phaistos Disc, though, is an open question: maybe it's just a board game and not a text at all.
