	This is a first class article and I particularly like the diagrams.
Could you ask IX magazine to make sure it stays on the WWW for as long as 
possible?  I would like to be able to point people at it.  (If so, is that 
the permanent URL?).

	If you ever think of drawing diagrams for XML-LINK that would be 
a great help to me :-).


I hope this serves as a catalyst for other readers of this list - there is
a LOT of work that needs to be done in providing introductions to XML, and
in particular LINK will benefit from having clear expositions.  More examples
of all sorts are needed.

(one small correction - JUMBO is not specific to chemistry.  It will read
any XML document and display it as a tree.  Semantics can then be added at
the element level, by adding (say) MATRIX.class - which could have an
invert() method.  In this sense it is somewhat complementary to stylesheets.)
