  That's my point. XML 1.0 is a cleaned-up, simplified
version of SGML and it took off like wildfire.

  Conclusio: It's better to start with a simple core
and then add on to it using real-world experience
instead of using a big-bang approach that supposedly
solves everything from the start.

  Of course I've looked. I have also read your XForms
Essentials book in progress and as I said before I
applaud your effort. However, your lack of real-world
examples speaks for itself.

  Well, my opinion are backed by facts and research
and I'm sure you know the SGML story better than I do.
