Subject:  [RFC] Whitepaper on Visual XML

A draft of a whitepaper that I've written called "Visual XML: Authoring, Publishing and Viewing Structured Information" is now available on the VRML Consortium's website:


I'm mostly thinking about the rendering of arbitrary XML files in VRML rather than HTML. I have some experience with SGML, but I'm definitely coming at this from the VRML side of things so I do have some unresolved issues regarding how this work might fit in with stylesheets, the DOM, XPointer & XLink, and XML's design goals in general. Any comments regarding those areas are especially welcome.

I think the most interesting possibilities lie in what 3D rendering might mean for XLink, so if you're the type who likes to skip to the juicy parts (like me), you might want to check out that part first. :) And please feel free to forward this announcement to other lists as appropriate (it's just been posted on www-vrml, but that's it so far).



Note: See the database section Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) - ISO/IEC 14772-1:1997 for more information on VRML and SGML/XML.]
