Subject: Re: The Next Generation of Lisp Programmers From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 25 Aug 2002 19:06:43 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Tim Bradshaw | Maybe I've missed the point of what you are saying, or of what SGML could | do, but my impression is that while validatability is clearly very desirable | goal, SGML/XML don't actually provide it in a way that makes it useful. Please note that I listed "the primitive language for content models" as one of the grave mistakes. Validatability is a /good idea/ in SGML that is not achieved with SGML. XML did not go anywhere useful with any of this. I am continually amazed that people do not see through the crap. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
