Dear all,

apologies for this beginner's question. I am the editor of EmotionML 
[1], which is currently a FPWD written in XHTML with CSS styles.

I am all in favor of distilling things to their essence, and an 
XML-to-surface type of spec writing process would seem to fit that well. 
Now I am looking for documentation on this, and find the Grammars 
section of the Editors' home page [2], which points to XMLSpec; on this 
mailing list I find mention of other frameworks including ReSpec and 
ReSpec 2, which I don't find mentioned on that page...

.... could anyone briefly point me to the available approaches, 
recommended best practice(s) etc.?

Also, is there a recommended way of converting the current XHTML version 
into XML-based spec? Is rewriting everything by hand the only option?

Thanks for any pointers, and best regards,
