XML 2.0

by Ric Johnson

The IETF has promoted the next revision of XML standard to recommendation status. Among the improvements for Xml 2.0 are no more schemas, reduced processing frameworks, an expansion of namespaces, and automatic transformation of tags to other formats such as jsOff, CSV, Sql, and a compressed binary form based on two's compliment.

Forgive the MT newB - the article looks good in the preview. I even hand edited the entities, but it still did not change the LessThan and GreaterThan properly. Perhaps I should not have used WordPad!

By the way - I actually persued a patent a few years ago on the basis of XmlZip. I even did some work on changing the XSLT as well - sometimes with 300-500% improvement in speed!

Hmmm ... no schemas, namespaces for namespaces (and dirty nodes to boot), the joy of Sax ... yup, sounds just about like what's needed here. So when does the spec come out, and is it in a plain brown wrapper?

Strange... why was this April fools joke written on 31 March? I mean, this HAS to be a joke. It's just too ridicilous to be believed. If you want something better, see http://css3.info if you haven't already. Considering MS' past reputation, I, as well as many others, fell for it.

@boen_robot,


Ric lives on the East Coast of the US. The O'Reilly servers are on the West Coast, three hours behind that of the East, so while it appears he published this just less than three hours too early, he really published it 16 minutes after the start of his April Fools Day.


@Ric,


You can go into the MT interface and change the publish time to compensate for the difference. In the "Authored On" box change 2008-03-31 21:16:XX to 2008-04-01 00:16:XX replacing XX with the proper seconds.

I’d prefer reading in my native language, because my knowledge of your languange is no so well. But it was interesting! Look for some my links:
