Yep, this seems like the kind of information  it is  worth collecting.

I am not sure if we are going to get people contributing in XML or even
[seudo-XML, but I am prepared to give it a try. Let's find out...

Who thinks they will contribute one or more techniques, and would use simple
markup if we wrote an example or three?

(Me, for a first response)

Who would find it easier to do this if it could be done in plain HTML (using
class or some such hack)

Me, again.

Who would be prepared to use HTML but not XML

Not me

(I reserve the right to change my mind on all of the above at some stage...)

  Here is my opening shot:

  Each checkpoint can/should have the following:

      a.. aim
      b.. introduction
      c.. relevant checkpoints
      d.. relevant technologies
      e.. user groups affected by this
      f.. description of the code
      g.. code
      h.. baseline capabilities
      i.. comments
      j.. Author

  Or, for thoughs who prefer to talk in XML:
  a <technique>  contains:
      a.. None or one <introduction>
      b.. One <aim>
      c.. One or more <checkpoint>
      d.. One or more <technology>
      e.. One or more <user groups>
      f.. One or more <description> with an attribute number to link it to a code element
      g.. One or more <code> with an attribute number to for sequencing
      h.. One or more <baseline capabilities>
      i.. One or more <assumption>
      j.. None or one <comment>
      k.. None or more <author>

  When someone adds a new baseline capabilities or assumptions, it could be added to a list that could later become an enumerated type. What is important is that we all use the same exact terms.

  Keeping the same terms, will help with renderings, indexing, searching...

  Should we put XML tags in the actual techniques that we submit?
