Re: Fw: Re: CG: XML (and SQL)

Marja Riitta koivunen's work on annotea [0] recognised this and has had
3-odd years developing the theme with implementations. Behzad Ketali
presented [1] a paper on this [2], at the ozewai conference last week.
There's a bunch of other approaches to the same idea - the idea behind the server was to allow for multiple evaluations of the same
content, and querying according to a variety of criteria - I gave a
presentation on the value of that a couplem of weeks ago but the slides
are in spanish [3].

[1] (powerpoint)
[3] ask me - I'll get them up in the next few days.
