No problem. I think you can assume that a large number of XML-DEVers
support the idea of interoperability and that individuals or organisations
may join you. Personally it looks a good idea. I think the relevance to XML
will very much be:
- can I transmit XML over the wire in a software independent manner? (e.g.
I do not have to embed a processing instruction identifying the XML browser
to be used).
- can I embed XML in HTML and make sure that I can extract it precisely?
- can I write xHTML (i.e. HTML in XML syntax) and have it cleanly and
I suspect that we (as XML-DEV) would all say yes to these (and probably
more that I haven't thought of.) You are welcome to link to this statement
from your pages if it's useful :-)
