Dear Reader,

Earlier this year at the WWW2002 conference, there was a
surprisingly strong interest in ontologies--structured models
of known facts.  Ontologies have come out of the research labs
and into common use for modeling complex information.

Our main feature this week is a survey of tools available for
editing ontologies.  As part of his survey Michael Denny also
provides a great introduction to what ontologies are, how they
vary, and how they are constructed.

"Ontology Building: A Survey of Editing Tools" can be found at

Following up on our recent look at Digital Talking Books, Alan
Kotok reports this week on U.S. legislative proposals to implement
an electronic standard for learning materials: such a standard,
likely to be XML-based, could radically improve the lot of
visually impaired children at school.

Finally this week, we have the November edition of Bob DuCharme's
"Transforming XML" column.  In this installment, Bob digs into
using <xsl:number> for adding automatic numbering to your document.

Thanks for reading.

Ontology Building: A Survey of Editing Tools
Ontologies, structured depictions or models of known facts, are
being built today to make a number of applications more capable
of handling complex and disparate information. Michael Denny
surveys the tools available for creating and editing ontologies.



Automatic Numbering, Part 1
In this month's Transforming XML column Bob Ducharme explains
