Draft US gov't XML Developer's Guide
Date: Wed, 23 Jan 2002 10:28:50 -0500 From: "CRAWFORD, Mark" <MCRAWFORD@lmi.org> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: RE: Draft US gov't XML Developer's Guide
A couple of minor points:
The Federal guide is being developed by a team headed by Marion Royal of GSA. Marion is the Co-chair of the Federal CIO Council XML Working Group.
The Federal guide was patterned after one already published by the Department of the Navy Chief Information Officer. That guide was prepared by the DON XML Working Group (Chaired by Michael Jacobs) Technical subcommittee (chaired by Brian Hopkins), and continues to be refined.
The EPA is also developing a guide that is being harmonized with the Federal Guide.
In addition to the XML-Dev best practices, the Guides are drawing from work being conducted in various standards efforts to include the OASIS UBL TC, ebXML, UN/CEFACT eBTWG, and ANSI ASC X12.
The Federal Guide is a first draft. We will be refining the contents based on comments by members of the Federal CIO Council XML Working Group. Others are certainly welcome, and members of this list are encouraged, to comment as well. I routinely monitor this list, and will also accept direct submissions to me for consideration by the Team.
