Um, didn't the XML standard just get rejected for being too "anti-European" or something? Doesn't that kinda pose problems for Netscape to claim "standards compliance" on XML if there is no standard and won't be for a while? Just food for thought.

The Computing Technology Industry Association ( http://www.comptia.org/ ) has issues with the standard promoted by RosettaNet ( http://www.rosettanet.org/ ). The RosettaNet standard is just one application of XML--in this case having to do with e-commerce.

The story was reported in the Detroit Free Press here ( http://www.freep.com/tech/qbnews4.htm ).

This is CompTIA's press release on the subject ( http://www.comptia.org/newspr/19990826ec.htm ).

XML has been a W3C recommendation since February 1998.

Just some condiments for your food for thought. :)
