"Next-Generation E-Forms." By Jon Udell. In InfoWorld (January 23, 2004). E-forms provide a more accurate, intuitive replacement for paper forms than plain HTML forms or antiseptic data entry screens. Common to all the vendors' approaches is the use of XML as the bridge between applications that gather data from end-users and the back- office systems that absorb that data. http://www.infoworld.com/article/04/01/23/04FEforms_1.html http://xml.coverpages.org/xmlPapers200401.html#UdellEForms

"Microsoft Seeks XML-Related Patents." By David Becker. From CNET News.com (January 23, 2004) Microsoft applies for patents that could prevent competing applications from reading documents created with the latest version of Office. XML capabilities have been one of the main selling points for Office 2003. The patents could create a barrier for competing software, such as future versions of OpenOffice and StarOffice, from working with Microsoft's XML format. http://news.com.com/2100-1013-5146581.html http://xml.coverpages.org/xmlPapers200401.html#beckerEUPatent

"Microsoft Justifies Its XML Patent Moves." By Mary Jo Foley. From Microsoft Watch (January 23, 2004). Microsoft's Not-So-Secret Plot to Overthrow XML? Microsoft is seeking to patent XML interoperability technology around Word. The company claims it isn't seeking to derail XML. And it denies that its patent moves contradict its decision last fall to open up its XML schemas for Word, Excel and InfoPath. Is Microsoft within its rights to seek protection for technology that rides above the XML standard? Or is this just another example of Microsoft seeking to monkey with standards? http://www.microsoft-watch.com/article2/0,4248,1458631,00.asp http://xml.coverpages.org/xmlPapers200401.html#FoleyMSPatents

"WS-Resource Framework:Globus Alliance Perspectives." By Ian Foster (Argonne National Laboratory / University of Chicago / Globus Alliance). Presentation January 20, 2004 at GlobusWORLD 2004. See especially slide #9, "From OGSI to WSRF:Refactoring and Evolution." "... Despite enthusiasm for OGSI [Open Grid Services Infrastructure (OGSI) Version 1.0], adoption within Web community turned out to be problematic. The solution: WSRF partitions OGSI version 1.0 functionality into a family of composable specifications, tones down the usage of XML Schema, and makes an explicit distinction between the 'service' and the stateful 'resources' acted upon by that service. http://xml.coverpages.org/FosterWSRF200401.pdf http://xml.coverpages.org/xmlPapers200401.html#FosterWSRF
