Unfortunately I have to agree with scott on this.

(i have sent various other emails concerning this, however thay are being
diverted to DD.)

You are requiring too much of the author, and imho xml is a pap for the same
reason.

to quote charles:
You should look through the HTML specifcation for
the attributes title, rel, and class in particular, and for elements such as
blockquote, samp, cite (also an attribute) which are designed to code
specific types of semantics (the class mechanism allows for the general
encoding of semantics).


someone with cog-dif or not may wish to author pages on sports.
they will generally know if they are talking cows or bulls.
expecting them to cope with the above techno-babble is a non-starter.
hence my views on xml.
