My 'XML' wish for year 2000 is: atomic and molecular XML
Atomic XML standards are one page specs each of which defines
a single 'power word', a tag name or an attribute name. An
example is 'xmlns' or 'table'.
Molecular XML standards are small specs each of which defines
a single 'power phrase', a micro-schema involving just a few
elements. An example is 'address' molecule that consists of
small number of elements that make up an address.
These 'micro-standards' will allow us to create a more coherent
XML document standards as well as XML software that can 'learn'
to handle new standards by plugging in new power words or phrases.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Millenium to you all.
