How can we keep the XML dream alive?

 [Next]

  • Beware of strategies that limit XML to the role of middleware
  • Beware of attempts by platform vendors to dictate standard schemas (DTDs) and namespaces
  • Beware of attempts by browser vendors to introduce nonstandard extensions to the XML family of languages
  • Beware of attempts by browser vendors to introduce ad-hoc tags into HTML under the name of XML
  • Insist on real XSL support: the ability to render formatting objects, not just HTML tags
  • Support platform-independent tools vendors
  • Support the only organization dedicated to interoperable document standards: OASIS (http://www.oasis-open.org)
