Subject: Why XML is perferable
Well it worked fine for 2800+ documents and how many today ?
3060+ today, with many ugly figures in '-', '_', 'o', '/', '\' chars,
is very difficult to read. In XML, you can even search for figures if
we develop unified Internet/flowchart/etc DTDs.
Yes, fine - if you happen to like messy diagrams; are not Chinese,
Japanese, Korean, Arabic, .......
BTW, I hate to pay for ITU documents what are supposed to be public (I
remember the years old discussion when they ceased to exist available
for anon ftp)
I hate ITU too. :)
Nice to see some reasoned argument for a change !
