The bone point with extensibility is extensibility of the related tools... Doing it in RDF, for example, raises the need for an amount of tools which not, for example, as mature as XML libraries. How would you handle extensibility for the conversion to and from these programmes? paul > I have computer programs which can compute algebraic > expressions.
